Many people believe that "Christmas" is more or less just a celebration of an event by people we would call "pagan" nowadays I think, but it was inckluded into the Christian calendar.
Like Eastern, for example.
Like churches, which - at least here - often stand ewhere "pagan" places had been.

(The word "Pagan" is always used from the perspective of the one using this word … I think that this word is mainly used by people belonging to major religions, but not by "pagans" themselves, I guess.)

Any intelligent fool can make things bigger, more complex, and more violent. It takes a touch of genius and a lot of courage to move in the opposite direction. (E.F.Schumacher, Economist, Source)
