A different look at the war on Christmas

Steve, over at the Fifth Column, has an interesting look at where the war on Christmas started. I haven't researched all his claims to verify them, so take them with that warning. He starts with a look at how Martin Luther first attacked the Holy Day of All Hallowed's Eve and progresses to where Christmas is one of the few Holy Days left.

Catholics complained when Protestants stripped the Mass out of Christmas. Now Protestants complain that atheists will strip Christmas out of the calendar.
Or as I would put it, they took the Mass out of Christmas, how can they now complain about removing the other half of the word Christmas.
