100 Words -- 'Tis the Season!

A lot of folks complain that they aren’t allowed to refer to Christmas as well, Christmas. Call it what you want, just understand that why we celebrate the birth of Christ on December 25 -- scholarly research favors a springtime birth -- is still debated. Some argue it was to overlap pagan holidays celebrating the winter solstice. Others cite the belief that Christ was crucified the same day he was conceived: March 25. (Creepy, but the math works.) Either way, December 25 wasn’t official until the middle of the 4th Century. So call it Christmas. Call it the holidays. It’s all good.
