    Personally, I’m with Cooper.

    In this case, “tchotchkes” may be taken as a euphemism.

    Well, Easter is just a spin-off of Passover. And Christmas is a Jewish guy’s birthday.

    Christmas is Mithra’s birthday. (Really.) Jesus could not have been born in December if you believe the Gospel stories.

    If you believe that God can hold the sun still long enough for his people to win a battle, you believe that sheep can have lambs in December. What’s a little tinkering with the clockwork of the universe to a deity?

    As for the point of this, if the Christians helped themselves to whole sections of your holy books, why complain about them taking only one extra word a couple of millennia later? Oy! Such kvetching!

    What’s a tchotchke?

    @ Dan W (7) - It’s a Yiddish word meaning “knickknack”.

    I don’t see why the fact that Jesus was probably born in April or March changes the fact that Christmas is a celebration of his birthday. That would be like saying that it’s not a celebration of my birthday unless we do it within a week of the right day, or that it only counts as doing something for Valentine’s if it’s on the 14th of February.
