Keep the Merry! Dump the Myth!
As you enjoy the public banquets, private gift-giving, carnival atmosphere, and decorated tree during the festival of Saturnalia reform Jesus, I hate to be a party-pooper and point this out, but Saturn reform Xmas isn’t real. Sorry.

Funny though...all dialects call it christmas it sounds the way it does in different languages because of the accent the people from there have, e.g an ijaw person calls fish 'fiss' does not mean that is what fish is in ijaw its just the accent. And the word christmas is not as old as your language so can not be in your language.
