Halloween and Thanksgiving are celebrated in most of the anglosphere (though they no longer celebrate thanksgiving in Britain) so this objectively isn’t true. Also, cut the very few Jesus things out of Christmas and you’ve got Yule, which is almost the same festival. There’s very little pagan signficance to the beginning of the Gregorian year.

Yeah i’m not from the “anglo-sphère”

And Britain has never celebrated Thanksgiving (at least according to Wikipedia https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Thanksgiving )

From the article you sent me:

The Thanksgiving holiday’s history in North America is rooted in English traditions dating from the Protestant Reformation.

Maybe know something and/or be able to read before being an ass? “Anglosphere” isn’t an uncommon term either.

I don’t consider Black Friday an actual holiday and I don’t plan to spend a single cent on any of these holidays until companies decide to pay a livable wage, so it’ll probably be a while but that’s fine since I stopped celebrating holidays years ago. Currently my wages go towards living and occasionally investing, they don’t go towards wasting money on unnecessary plastic garbage or electronics.
