That's a bit of a broad topic for such a tiny comment box!

I will note that on a recent survey (sorry, can't remember who did it, it was featured on Ceefax this morning) that there are 14% of people in Britain didn't know who Jesus was. I just find that too bizarre to comprehend.

Phil - it is not that bizarre when one remembers that Christmas now seems to be officially sponsored by the Coca Cola Company. Some people are bound to be confused.

On the subject of the corporate takeover of Xmas, see China Mieville's great little story here
