Christmas a holy day for Christians

I've just taken my blood pressure medicine so that I can write this to you. I do not know what Ramadan is or why it is celebrated by certain people at this time of year. I do know what Christmas is - it is the celebration of the birth of my Savior, Jesus Christ. That's why it's called Christ-mas.

Whether or not the 25th of December was His actual birth date can be disputed. However, that is the day that, through the ages, has been chosen to be the day that we Christians celebrate the birth of our Savior. For judges to rule that Christmas displays cannot be placed in certain areas is totally stupid and ridiculous. Christians and Jews have managed to celebrate Hanukah and Christmas in perfect harmony for thousands of years. Now, we have this Ramadan thing, which I would like to know why it is encroaching on our holiday. There's a lot more I'd like to say about the actions of non-Christians and the out-of-control ACLU, but I don't have enough blood pressure medicine for that.
