It's a paradox that at Christmas time people see, hear and talk a lot about Santa Claus instead of Jesus who is the reason of such celebration... why this happens?
I believe in Santa Claus.
I forgot which Dan Brown novel it was, but he mentions something about December 25th having nothing to do with Jesus Christ at all...Angels&Demons I think it was...
Students: Are you brave enough to let our tutors analyse your pronunciation?
Yeah I believe it was in Angels and Deamons as well, however you should not believe everything Dan Brown writes, though he has an incredible convincing and believing writers' style/ style of writing.

It's well known that the reason early Christians chose to celebrate the birth of Jesus at the time of the winter solstice was because it was a pagan holiday prior. That's the same reason that Easter is celebrated around the time of the vernal equinox. Celebrating important Christian holidays at the same time of the year that Europeans had celebrated pagan holidays made conversions to the new religion that much easier.
I understand that Easter is celebrated at the same time as the passover because we know that is when Jesus was crusified, isn't that right?
Anyway I reckon Santa gets all the attention because he gets the credit for the presents.
We all like presents.

Easter (named after the European pagan goddess of fertility, Oestre), is generally attached to the celebration around 'Easter Sunday', celebrating the day and date of the resurrection of Jesus.
The death of Jesus, on the same day as the Jewish passover , took place a few days before, on 14th of Abib, (Abib was later called Nisan) [Jewish Calendar], on what is now known as 'good Friday' by some church groups.
However, the annual day for Easter is always a Sunday.

Here is a rhyme that will help you...
"No need for confusion, if we but recall,
that Easter, on the first Sunday after the full moon following the vernal equinox, doth fall."
Easy, isn't it!

Easter customs include chocolate eggs, rabbits etc., but if we take the Bible as the basis for the custom, it doesn't actually mention these things.

Interestingly, although "Easter" (i.e. Easter Sunday) is widely celebrated in different countries with various customs, in the Bible it was only certain things, i.e. the bread and wine ceremony and it's significance, on Nisan 14th, the day of Jesus' death, that believers were told in scripture to commemorate/remember!
They are both real because Santa is Saint Peter and all Saints are dead now but for now on your parents are giving it to you

ok

And Jesus is Real he died for us and our sin so the christians don't go hell because the belive'n Jeus Christ
