Christmas Theme > All

There will probably be an increase of Chao Shop item trading once the Advent Calendar is back.

I had to change it back to Dark because light backgrounds do weird stuff to my eyes.
Doesn't help that the room I'm in has yellow lighting.

You know this just doesn't mean presents everybody. It means showing people you care. It means to give, as well as get. It means Jesus Christ's birthday. It's a lot of things. This time where you spend time with family, the friends who are there for you and me. And maybe even saying to someone, "You'll never know how much you mean to me." I mean sure there are lights and reindeer everywhere but Christmas can be so much more than that. So enjoy it everybody. Merry Christmas Chao Island!

And $$$ For fat-cat corporations! Also, the 25th isn't Jesus' birthday. That's a myth. The Catholics altered possible history to compete with a Pagan holiday similar to Christmas.

The 25 is the resurection of Jesus,no?
Its the first january the "birthday" (in fact,i think its the 3 january,gotta verify that).Its why we tell 2012 Af. J.-C. (After Jesus-Christ).

^I have no idea what you just said, but I assume you're disagreeing with me.

The 25th of December was never considered the resurrection of Jesus as far as I know. You're thinking of Easter. The 25th is widely considered to be his birth despite that being unlikely. I also doubt that Anno Domini (the person who came up with the dating system we widely use today) was accurate pinpointing the birth of Jesus, if he ever existed. He was probably off by several years, if not decades. It's not something to think too much about though. Today the dating system we use just an effective way to recall when things happens, and what will happen. I rarely think of its religious origin.

^Jesus existed, that much is fact, it's whether he was resurrected that is questionable.

Anyway, it is highly unlikely that the 25th December was Jesus' birthday, as the census wouldn't have been taken in winter and other reasons which I cannot remember. It is more likely that his actual birthday is sometime in Spring. Christians decided to celebrate Jesus' birthday on the 25th presumably to make the Winter less harsh in the olden days, as well as what Mayor said about Pagans and stuff. The year of Jesus' birth is said to be anywhere from -4 to 6.

Merry Christmas.

Also, nowadays Christmas is all about the Christmas cheer. As long as you feel that festive cheer, you'll be good!

I wasn't disagreeing with you,i just put what i learn in religion class.I also learn in that same class that pentagram is the bad :facepalm: .So its maybe false,but i've learned in "C'est pas sorcier" that jesus wasn't born the first january but in a range around it.But thats not the point of the topic.
