Of course it isn't real. Christians need to understand that there actually are other religions. Get over it, and let them be able to worship through the holidays as well.

By the fouth and fifth centeruries C.E.,Celtic Christianity slithered into Ireland..St.Patrick had his hands full and here's where the kettle starts to boil.At first ,the Pagan peoples openly welcomed Christianity (as they openly welcomed the beliefs of other people), but as Christianity filtered into the Celtic system,the church officials had a few problems---mainly,the Celts didn't want to give up their holidays or many of their folk practices.They were unwilling to throw out traditions ingrained in their family and social structure for hundreds of years.If you can't get someone to completely change,what do you do?I believe the operative word here is ''bribe''.And that's exactly what happened.The Germanic Yule changed to Christmas (December 25 is actually the birthday of Pagan god Mithra,a solar deity).Also the Celtic Oimelc changed to Easter ;and Samhain changed to All Hallows Eve,Halloween..

Christmas is nothing more than the holiday that usurped Yule in an attempt to convert the early pagan Celts. Not Jesus' birthday. Do you really think the shepherds would've had their sheep out during monsoon season?
