Seems like all them christians who put up trees and decorate them are disobeying the lord !

Jeremiah 10:2-4 (New International Version)

2 This is what the LORD says:
"Do not learn the ways of the nations
or be terrified by signs in the sky,
though the nations are terrified by them.

3 For the customs of the peoples are worthless;
they cut a tree out of the forest,
and a craftsman shapes it with his chisel.

4 They adorn it with silver and gold;
they fasten it with hammer and nails
so it will not totter.

Ho! Ho! Ho!
Happy Solstice to all you heathens out there. May you next year be abundant and happy.
This is the reason for the season.
Always thought that was about carved wood, not about decorating trees. I heard this mentioned before on the Atheist Experience, but I thought it was a bit weak to use in atheist vs theist discussions.
I guess it depends on where you place the importance, however either way it is a ridiculous precept.
