Pagan and secular symbols, rather than reverence for Our Lord and Savior. Just what I’d expect when a Jew tries to come to Christ.

Charles, Jesus is YOUR Lord and Savior. For us, secular Jews, he’s a long-dead relative.
And why do you dress up evergreen tree with toys and lights? Such a pagan symbol, ts-ts-ts.

“Just what I’d expect when a Jew tries to come to Christ.”
Wait a minute, are you pulling a Dawn Eden on us?

Happy Christmas to you karol. If you want to celebrate any religious festival not of your own chosen religion or heritage, then feel free to do so. Only a real nut would begrudge you of that.

Have a little Paul Auster to celebrate,

Merry Christmas to you, Karol!
And Charles, Christmas should have very little religious meaning to Christians. If you want to give reverence to the Lord, remember the one major event that is common to all four Gospels: the death, burial and resurrection of Christ.
I have one friend who is Jewish by heritage but an atheist. He, his wife and kids celebrate Christmas with a tree, presents, etc., just not the religious aspect. Ditto for two other friends. It’s not the religion of the season, but the festivity of it all.

The only major event common to all 4? Uh….no. The Last Supper is in all four. Ditto the money changers scene. Thats off the top of my head though those were from His last week. Granted some things are in 3 but not 4 (namely John is the odd man out-the calling of the 12 and the Transfiguration come to mind).
For Christmas to have no religious meaning, I think we have to downplay the Old Testament and the promise and anticpation that runs through it-like Issiah and othe prophets. Still, you are right that Easter is the main event.
