Ho,Ho,Ho.. Merry Christmas

Tradition is a big part of the world we live in. Like with so many other things it's not always accurate or the best way to go about things. We all get caught up in the moment,what person wants to be left out in the cold when everyone else is doing it right? we as people have a funny way of "if it ain't broke don't fix it","everyone else is doing it" why ask questions or question years & years of tradition right? even if it's    untruthful or deceiving. We talk truth,but only if being truthful is beneficial for that particular purpose,thou shall not lie? a human flaw which will never change and subject to each individuals discretional   needs. Questions.. Was Christ born on Christmas Day? What is the true origin of Christmas? Are we really honoring Christ when celebrating this day?. Some justifications will be that it really doesn't matter as long as I know what I believe in,and that it doesn't matter as long as my hearts in the right place,because it's really what we make it right? I'm in no position to look down on anyone,because I'm a victim of playing follow the leader as well, I try as much as possible not to throw scriptures around,but it's a language that most guideline to,Matt 15:9 But in vain they do worship me, teaching for doctrines the commandments,Mark 7:9 And he said unto them, Full well ye reject the commandment of God, that ye may keep your own tradition. So while keeping to tainted traditional rituals where do we really stand? This is no ploy to change your mind nor steer you away from your usual holiday festivities,but since we are celebrating shouldn't we at least know why?
