A Different Wording Is Required.

Today I noticed a car with a "Keep Christ in  Christmas" bumper sticker.  Thinking about it I realised the proper bumper sticker should actually read "Keep paganism in Christmas."  After all Christmas isn't the actual date of Jesus' birth, for which no specific date is known.  Rather it was a co-opting of celebrations of the Winter Solstice, moved three or four days later in a rather poor attempt to hide the fact.  Or maybe it was a clever moving of the date, allowing pagans to keep celebrating their traditions while pretending they'd adopted that new fangled Christian stuff.
