I have always been fascinated, that early Christians linked so many of their religious holidays to the pagan holy days. It's almost like they acknowledged that spreading Christianity by the sword was insufficient for conversion and that co-option of their holidays were required to slowly convert the locals over. Of course, with the survival of holly, wreaths, evergreen trees, etc one could argue they were never completely successful!
