Green pine trees, elaborate ornaments, wrapped presents, eggnog and mistletoe are common sights during this time of year. Some front lawns may have the nativity scene with depictions of Mary, Joseph and baby Jesus in the manger, perhaps accented with barn animals, three magi (or wise men), and a bright star shining brilliantly above.
It all depends on the version of the story you like.
But the genesis of these festivities were never intended to be about Christ. At least that is what many scholars teach and believe.
