"but the reality is that christmas isn’t Christian..."

Hogwash. December 25th is the day on the Catholic Liturgical calendar that the Mass commemorating the birth of Jesus Christ, prominently proclaimed in each of the Gospels, is commemorated and celebrated. It is not the contention of the Church that December 25th was His actual birthday. It is, however, a high holy day and has absolutely nothing to do with Christmas Trees, Yule Logs, Elves, Reindeer, Holly Wreaths, etc. It is and was very much Christian. Peace be with you

There is nothing in any of the gospels about any mass.

The mass is blasphemy, and christmas is especially noxious because it assigns the birth of Tammuz as being that of Christ.

Christ was born at Yom Kippur in the year 2BC by our current erroneous calendar.

Real Christians believe that the prophecy of Christ’s birth at Yom Kippur was fulfilled. Others, meh!
