Is December 25th a Pagan Holiday?

Let’s make sense with these pagan-threats against Christmas: 

Some symbols, especially Santa Claus needs to be removed from the Holiday,  Christian children need to be looking up for the Star of David that shown over the manger or for the precious soles of the feet of Christ in the rapture and not some sleigh of reindeer and a flying santa. Do you believe the government in the U.S. will move Christmas to say...September 21st?   No...  and we don’t have Bibles in the hotel rooms anymore, no more 10 commandments on the wall of the courthouses, no more prayer in schools, no nativity scenes in front of public offices. If we eliminate this glorious day of celebration all together we simply wouldn’t have it at all except in our private lives and that's just what the devil ordered, 'remove it, keep it quiet, hide it, and eliminate it'. satan wants to increase and God decrease. Let's not be agents and spokes-people for satan’s agenda and goal to erase Christmas. Let's just Fix it.

I remember sharing with a Jehovah's Witness, she said the 'crucifix hanging on my neck was idolatry', and I said yes “I idolize Christ” and she said but “you cant make an idol out of the symbol by wearing it, we are not to wear graven images “.....tsk, then I shared {1st Corinthians 1:18 } how the preaching of the cross is unto them which perish, "foolishness" but unto us which are saved it is the power of God", and how there are graven images all around us, I asked, "do you have bowls in your home?", well that's a graven image after the likeness of things in heaven, and your cups are also so get rid of all of them and just pour drinks in your hand, I also asked "do your kids play musical instruments?" well that’s also a graven image after the likeness of things in heaven, so pull them out of the music classes and get rid of those graven images. That's what videos like many on social media are posting, trying to do away with the “whole” when it only requires getting rid of the few things within in that are questionable. It is written in Romans 13:7 " Render therefore to all their dues: tribute to whom tribute is due; custom to whom custom; fear to whom fear; honor to whom honor."

(Even the 3 wise men brought birthday gifts to Baby Jesus.) She mentioned we shouldn’t honor birthdays because it's idolatry, I mentioned how the Bible says in Romans Chapter 14, that we should let no one judge what days we honor especially if we are honoring the Lord.
I mentioned how the Bible says in Matthew 7:11  how we "know how to give good gifts unto our children", and how Colossians 2:16 says let no man judge what days you honor" and Romans14: 1-23  says “some men esteem one day above another and another man esteems everyday alike, let everyone be persuaded in his own mind”.

We are making a mountain out of a mole-hill here with contention over pagan practices and it borders on blaspheming Christ.
Anytime you are against extra effort and the setting aside of a high day to honor the Lord, and are in a country that actually has declared it a National Holiday and you rebuke it, whose side are you really on?  I can see Satan’s ministers being the only ones hating Christmas and seeking to rid the world of it while he makes Halloween and Devils Night bigger, brighter, more decorated and celebrated.  We need to be careful not to call so great a celebration in favor of our Lord's Birth a pagan expression!  The pagans worshipped the log, they idolized the tree, and we only use it as decor.  To "deck" means to decorate, it's in the Bible several times in a favorable sense, look it up.  Why bring ANY plants into the home for that matter?   Let's keep/get things into perspective.  Keep it in Context. You don’t rid the whole holiday, you rid the items of it that are questionable.
The commandment says that we not "make unto thee any graven image of any likeness in heaven or earth FOR TO WORSHIP IT"  Lev. 26:1  We decorate the tree we don’t worship it!  [In Jeremiah they "decked" the tree and worshipped it. [ Jer. 10:4 ]   

The scriptures she referred to were all about "worshipping" the graven images,  she mentioned that Barbie and Ken dolls and any dolls, are graven images and sin to have them; I said to her..."Well speaking of things we have that are graven images, made after the likeness of things in heaven, or earth or under water,...well there's chairs/thrones in heaven, trumpets, buildings and other items yet you have them and you don't worship them". Exodus 20:5  The command is to "NOT WORSHIP A GRAVEN IMAGE: 
 Just because something is not observed in the Bible as a High-day doesn’t mean we can’t dedicate a High-Day to the Lord, It Is an Honor unto Him, and He receives it. Everyday of the year was given by God, we give no day to the pagans, it all belongs to God who is to be honored everyday, including December 25th, don’t give satan anything. It all belongs to God. Long Live Christmas Day, til Kingdom Come !!!!!!!!

Should we honor the birthdays of dead presidents but not 
 formally recognize the Birth of the King of Kings?
