You had only stated NoŽl. You had not mentioned BŻche de NoŽl. And still, once again, if you look at the definition of Yule, two out of three of the definitions found on www.dictionary.com refer to Christmas. The only other definition refers to a pagan feast which I did not think you, being atheist and all, would celebrate.

I hadn't mentioned it; Buche de Noel was only for sake of example, and you might have heard of it -- it's a very yummy dessert.

Yes, Yule is a pagan feast, pagan meaning "non-Abrahamic" to you Christians. The people celebrating it were polytheistic, but Yule has retained its status as a CULTURAL event, not a RELIGIOUS event, and thus I celebrate it. Happy Yuletide.

"Troll we now the Yuletide carols!"

'Tis a pagan song!, call'd "Deck the Halls".

no one celebrates Kwanzaa
Ironically, I met a girl who celebrates Kwanzaa.  She convinced her parents to do it, so she gets 7 more presents.

But the presents tend to be a bit smaller... and don't people get many presents from their parents on Chirstmas Day, as opposed to 7 one-present days? So it would work out to be close to even.

True, and according to most religious historians Jesus Christ was actually born in late spring. Christmas was celebrated first in the winter because it coincided with Yule.
Christmas is on the December 25 because that is when the Magi (also known as the wise men) arrived in Bethlehem to bring gifts to Jesus when he was a child.

Here is a sight I found interesting about the star of Bethlehem. Personally, I think the DVD is much better than the site, but oh well.

Anyone want to find the rest of the words?
