Victoria Grossack: As the end of the year draws near, people are hanging wreaths on their doors and decorating their houses and trees with lights. They’re also buying gifts for their families and friends, making a round of parties and wearing silly hats. These activities are not necessarily mentioned in the Bible as part of the birth of Christ and yet many people associate them with Christmas. Where did they come from? Many were co-opted from the Saturnalia, a Roman holiday.
I am an agnostic, don't like atheist much, well some of them, they can be worse than any die in the wool believer.

Nice, good read.
If you must have finale absolute answers, then become an hard nosed atheist or a fundie of any religion, both seem to be black and white thinkers, and have only contempt for those who think differently.
