Active introvert: So who's better now, Venezuela or North Korea?
plausdeny: You know, Christmas, or Christ Mass, is a date set in the Catholic liturgical calendar (and inherited by all the other Christian denominations), as is every other day in Advent. Halloween, or All Hallows Eve, otherwise known as the night before the Feast of All Saints, is also a date set in the Catholic liturgical calendar. Easter is defined as the Sunday following Passover, the Jewish holiday, and furthermore, Mardi Gras or Fat Tuesday, is the day before Ash Wednesdays, the beginning of Lent, which all anchors on the day of Easter.You can have you Winter Party any day you want, or have a gift giving party, but unless you're been elected Pope, you don't get to move Christmas.Hey Mr Venezuelan The-State-Can-Do-Anything Dude, I have a recommendation: nail down the dates of Ramadan. It's all over the calendar, and that makes it difficult to remember when I need to be sensitive to my Muslim compatriots fasting traditions. I'm sure they'll thank you appropriately.
lack of warmth: Why can't he? The pope is only an elected head of state, elected by his peers; and Dec. 25th is not Christ's birthday. Easter is the only accurate date, since the story did happen around and ended after Passover. The Catholics didn't start that celebration.

Or did you think the day was always about spending some money at Hallmark and the local florist?You wanna have a party for whatever reason you feel like, go ahead. Tell ya what: go celebrate Cinco de Mayo in April. There aren't enough party days in April.
HaywoodJablonski: The last act of a desperate man
lack of warmth: See, you missed where I don't care if the pope picks March 3rd as wear silly hat day, anymore than Venezuela's President moving Christmas. Neither man is anymore important than the other in my life. Saying move Cinco de Mayo to April is like moving Oct. 4th to June for the kicks of it. You're argument is all over the place. Christmas was put on Dec. 25th, by a man for his reasons. Why can't someone else decide to celebrate the meaning behind it on a different day? It will not affect you in anyway. Would your life be any different if the pope had placed Christmas in the middle of the summer, all those years ago? You would've just gone along with it based on the premise that it was simply been done that way for a long time. Christmas was picked up by our federal government because we were a new nation and wanted excuses to celebrate.
