Lady Liberty gave me this one to think about in regard to Jesus being born on Dec 25 some cultures honor the day one was conceived not born as their birthday. If you take what most JW believe Jesus was born on October 3 or 4 for what many JW's say. So count back nine months from the end of December and you get the first of October. If Jehovah impregnated Mary then he knows what day it was. Maybe it was December 25th and the JW are blaspheming God by not celebrating the day he choose to put his son here on earth in the smallest of forms.
I've also read that there was a concept that a prophet is concieved on the same day he died. I can't remember if it was Jewish or North African Christians. Anyway, if Jesus was concieved on the day he died counting back you get December 25 or January 6, which also has something to do with the 12 days of Christmas, but I don't remember exactly.
Yeah, I agree, the hating on pagan holidays is just a way to make them stick out as different. I recently went to a Christmas cantata at a Methodist church. It was so beautiful. Listening to the song about his name being immanuel, God is with us, I finally got the feeling behind it, why Christmas is so important to Christians. Why wouldn't you celebrate the day your saviour was born?
