Is Christmas Pagan?

About this time of year numerous Christians become anxious about celebrating Christmas. Is Christmas Christian? Is Christmas Roman Catholic? Isn't Christmas a leftover from the pagan nature rituals of the ancient world? Jeff Meyers has done a lot of work on trying to sort out what is true and what is not about the Christmas season, as well as for the whole Church year. He recently posted several links to brief articles he has written answering some common objections to celebrating Christmas. Here are the articles. I encourage you to read the ones that interest you the most. One will not agree with everything that is said, but Meyers will get you thinking about things you haven't considered before.

Let the saints be joyful in glory, let them sing aloud on their beds, let the high praises of God be in their mouth, and a two edged sword in their hand, to execute vengeance on the nations, and punishments on the peoples; to bind the kings with chains and their nobles with fetters of iron. Psalm 149:5-8
