Christmas dinner isn't even something I think about when I think of Christmas.

You poor child.

Christmas dinner is the king of all dinners.

Jesus is the reason for the season!

But second to that, Christmas EVE dinner. That's my favorite meal of the whole year. Christmas Day dinner isn't much different from Thanksgiving except it's chicken rather than turkey and rather than pumpkin and apple pie, we have apple dumplings and plum pudding.

You say that because you don't know what thanksgiving is.

it's like a crappy version of christmas where you don't get the presents or santa claus and watch boring sports, right?

I can sort of see why Christmas dinner wouldn't be that great when you've had almost the exact same meal a month earlier.

Oh really? So the 'season' and all the customs associated with it weren't nicked wholesale from several pagan midwinter festivals then?

Not that Christianity has ever stolen from other religions, dear me no.

Who am I?

Was born of a virgin on December 25th, in a cave, attended by shepherds
Was considered a great traveling teacher and master
Had 12 companions or disciples
Promised his followers immortality
Performed miracles
Sacrificed himself for world peace
Was buried in a tomb and after three days rose again
Was celebrated each year at the time of His resurrection
Was called “the Good Shepherd”
Was identified with both the Lamb and the Lion
Was considered to be the “Way, the Truth and the Light,” and the “Logos,” “Redeemer,” “Savior” and “Messiah.”
Celebrated Sunday as His sacred day (also known as the “Lord’s Day,”)
Celebrated a Eucharist or “Lord’s Supper”

That's right, I'm Mithra!

Oh, sorry, did you say 'Jesus'?

Oh please, you yanks can't even decide what Thanksgiving dinner IS. Aside from the turkey, it seems to be a mess of regional, cultural, religious and ethnic variations.

Try putting macaroni and cheese on the table in the UK at Christmas, see how far that gets you...

Putting anything remotely edible on the table in the UK at any time of year gets you a shunning.

As for Mithra, you've got entirely the wrong verb in there. Christians didn't steal anything. They competed, and won. Our current Christmas imagery is also includes the great competition between the Germanic/Norse peoples and Christianity. It's packed into every world religion: traditions which were started because if and lead to victory against a competing faith. That is how cultures work: they compete.

Well... Duh. Are you implying everyone in your country eats the exact same thing for Christmas?

The 1970's called, they want their cultural satire back.

Not at all, but I could go into most homes in the UK and expect to see pretty much the same thing on the table today.

Even people who previously wouldn't have celebrated Christmas are getting on the celebration of reaching midwinter aspect.

A local Muslim butcher was selling halal turkeys. Whether he was selling them to Muslims having some sort of feast today or to his Christian / non-religious customers, I have no idea but it did cheer me to think that people from different cultures will be joining in the fun and celebration of today.

Since Christmas is a stolen holiday anyway, praising Jebus isn't needed.

Satan is the most important thing during Christmas.

And I could go into most american homes on thanksgiving and see pretty much the same thing on the dinner table! The regional/family differences aren't that huge!

It's really not satire.

Also, why wouldn't Muslims celebrate Christmas?

Tell you what Kepi, if you ever come over to the UK and try the food, THEN you can have an opinion. Until then, STFU, you don't actually know what you're talking about and you're making yourself stupid.

Well, more stupid than usual.

And Muslims don't celebrate Christmas because they don't believe Jesus is the son of God.

Yeah, because traditional recipes can't be replicated elsewhere.

No, but they believe in Jesus as their 2nd most important prophet. They may not get down with some of the songs, but most of the other stuff lines up okay. It's not like they're Hindu or Shinto. It's a relatively compatible religious bank drop in terms of cosmology. They just have different rules to the game.
