I have an opinion but bneing an outsider I would like to know yours. For me I would say Easter because it is the ending of the beginning and the beginning of the true journey.Your thoughts. Thanks.

So sad, you requested help from Christians, as if others don't help! Christmas is the feast of the Sun ( celebrating the Birth of the Sun on December 25th ) Easter is identified with the Babylonian Goddess Ishtar ( the Pagan Goddess of fertility ) and Sunday ( sun + day ) is the venerable day of the sun according to Edict of Constantine A.D. 321 as you see, non of them is Holy, so the question about which of them is the holiest is baseless.

It's exactly what the Jehova's witnesses told me, and I have to admit that they're right.

I think it depends on the person...some ppl think that Easter is more important while others think Christmas is. Personally, Christmas is more about Jesus and God then Easter is, but that is just b/c of how I was raised. I still like Easter and still feel it's a very special day but somehow Christmas is even more special to me. [b]**AT PEACE WITHIN** ~~STAND STRONG IN YOUR BELIEFS~~[/b]

As an outsider looking in I thought Easter was more about Jesus and G-d while Christmas is all about Santa Claus.

Well, I'm not christian, but I would say the holiest of days would be the day you feel your god truly in your heart, and it inspires you to be the best you you can be. Be blessed :).

I am a Christian and I consider them both eqully holy for different reasons. I agree with you about Easter, and exactly what you said BUT Christmas is a different kind of Holy. They knew from the very beginning that Jesus was the King of Kings, and the Savior. They knew when they saw the star, and followed it. In other words, there'd be no Easter if there wasn't a Christmas. Now, it would be a different story if no one knew who Jesus was going to be before he grew up, but he was born a pretty Holy guy from the start, so I think both are equally important.

There is nothing in the bible about remembering Christ birthday and nothing saying its on the 25th of December. He did say to "do this in remembrance of me" at the last supper on the feast of passover which is connected with Easter Sunday the day the lord was resurrected.

i think that you cannot pick one over the other. we celebrate Christmas in the shadow of the Cross (which is Easter) and the other way around. Easter could not have happened if it weren't for Christmas.
