    I don't, I like it when the children ask questions about the nativity scene and you can answer them with details about the true Christmas story from the bible.
    So I certainly DON'T find it boring at all.

    Also, my Hindu mate and his family celebrate Christmas, and my Muslim mate and his family celebrate Christmas - so to hell with this political correct-ness nonsense and set the desktop to be a nativity scene!
    Sorry, but Christmas is just one of the holidays celebrated at this time of year. As someone pointed out earlier, it is also Winter Solstice. I'd be offended if someone forced me to have a religious specific desktop so wouldn't force it on anyone else. But as I said, something generic and seasonal - like snow, is fine.

    Say what you like Zak, I know what you said & I know what you meant.
    Anyway, Tech_Guy has the right idea.

    Like i said people (i.e. not necessarily me), if it was me I was talking about I would have said so. To be honest it doesn't actually bother me if it was or if it wasn't.

    Huh? I agree with zak's sentiment - many people do find a nativity scene boring, else why would we have santa's and all the brightly coloured stuff that exists now?

    As is pointed out here, religious adherence is at a low - ie. 66% of the population of the UK have no links with any church and only 18% say they are practicing members of a religion. Why would most of those people find a collection of men, animals and a baby an interesting scene if they aren't really interested in the religion behind it?

    “answer them with details about the true Christmas story from the bible.”
    For a lot of people that’s not the true meaning/story of Christmas that something the Christians tagged onto Christmas at a later date. That’s why you have to be careful. Its not fair to force people down the Christian root.

    For some the 3 wise men are not part of the Christian version but date back much longer.

    Re: Christmas Wallpapers

    As is pointed out here
    You believe everything thats published on the internet ? Just because its on a computer screen does not mean it has to be true.
    Half the content of Wikipedia is a pile of crap !!

    For a lot of people that’s not the true meaning/story of Christmas
    Well when children ask me about Xmas, and as I went to a church of england school and also as a Christian [ but a bad one ] I tell them the story from the bible.

    People are getting hot under the collar over this !! - but there again it is religion. Just think what would happen if we had laws in this country which forbid you to call a toy doll Jesus.......
