You and me both, Peej. My comment was directed at whoever asked
about Christmas in the Kat world, whether it was the original
"Christian" Christmas (and yes I know of its pagan roots), or the
current "secular" Christmas which occurs at the same time.

Now to answer my question: I don't seem to recall any mention of Kat
religion, but IMHO it's more likely that a secular holiday does
exist, as this is seen in a number of hy00man cultures, while it's
unlikely a religion _that_ similar to Christianity should arise.

OTOH, there was that ST:TOS episode with the "Romans" and what
eventually turned out to be "Christians".
