To teach children to obey.

"Son, if you're naughty, I'll tell Santa not to give you any presents this year. You don't want that, do you? Now keep cutting my toenails."

The Meaning of Christmas is "It's going to get better so don't slit your wrists"

It's cold and depressing this time of year, so we need a celebration and of particularly good things to make us feel better. Also, thankfully, we're just passed the shortest day of the year, so we often celebrate the fact that daylight and light in general is coming back into the world. (hence the many religions that celebrate "light" such as Hanukkah, or have various gods, associated with light born around this time of year).

The Meaning of Easter, on the other hand is, "it's spring so let's all screw like rabbits" XD

I think its to spend time with your family and friends.

Jesus' birth. Oh I didn't say that. How dare anyone ever say that on the internet.



To people who are religious, it's that. But since this 2014, this is the internet, and this is America, it's obviously not that. It's to buy as many gifts as humanly possible to make yourself look good.

To get together with the whole dysfunctional extended family and drive each other nuts plus eat lots of food. Lately I've changed it to escaping that type of celebration.

What it's suppose to be about:
If you're Christian: The birth of Christ
For everyone who isn't celebrating some other holiday: To be with family.

What it's currently about:
Buying presents because this is a consumerist holiday.

Long of it short, it's an integration of Pagan and Christian populations' religious traditions and holidays intended to secure social stability in the Roman Empire which never lost its kick and has since been transformed to better fit modern consumerism while still retaining its religious overtones. Some treat it as a reverential event celebrating the birth of their messiah while others treat it as an excuse to give each other things, get drunk, and party. Provided aggregate human kindness, compassion, and love is increased by the holiday I'm satisfied.
