    Ok, so what is your reason for not believing that the world celebrates Christmas, Easter and New Year?

    And when did I say that I don't believe that the world celebrates Christmas, Easter and New Year?

    And what does Christianity have to do with the New Year anyway? The Chinese and Jews have been celebrating New Year's Day for many thousands of years before Christ was even born.

    Christmas is often referred to as Yuletide, which is the correct term for it. Yule is the Pagan Feast, based around the Winter Solstice. During the Feast of Yule, people would bring trees into their homes & decorate them with such things as nuts.

    When the Romans invaded Britain they hijacked the eisting Religions & imposed their own. Easter comes directly from Oesther, the Pagan Goddess of Fertility. Where do you think the Easter Eggs & Easter Bunny come from? There's no mention of those in the Bible, yet they are considered iconic of a supposedly Christian festival.

    The current Calendar system used is the Gregorian Calendar, which wasn't introduced until 1582 & took more than 300 years to become internationally adopted in preference to the Julian Calendar (which is currently 13 days behind the Gregorian Calendar).

    As per the most popular Religion in the world, per capita, I think you'll find that is Buddhism, owing to the population of China.

    An exceptionally informative contribution! I did wonder what the Easter Eggs are all about but until now had no clue. Just as an FYI aside "Jul" is what we still call Christmas here in Sweden.

    "What has politics done to evangelicals? To some extent, politics has convinced evangelicals that their political contribution are a set of values to be voted, rather than a vocation to discipleship that offers a distinctly different kind of politics altogether. If evangelicals will be a gospel people, that must include responding to the call to discipleship, and joining into Jesus’s peculiar way of engaging the world, not by building the most powerful coalition, but by walking faithfully according to the ways of God’s redemption."
