What do people do at Christmas? what else but merry making, eating and drinking!
Millions of people from virtually every country of the world celebrate the holiday season during the Winter Solstice, and this has been true even before Christmas as we now know it existed. Pagans , farmers and common folk celebrated the coming of spring during ancient times with festivals such as the Roman Saturnalia or rituals such as the Scandinavian Yule Log. These celebrations formed the backbone of holiday traditions that we all follow to this day.
Hard as it may be to believe, I’m not a complete curmudgeon. I sort of like Christmas. The eating, the drinking

We all know that the origin of Christmas is pagan. Is this against teachings of the bible? Here’s the verse:
Do not be idolaters, as some of them were; as it is written: “The people sat down to eat and drink and got up to indulge in pagan revelry.”
There you go. plain and clear.
