    WRONG!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    They celebrate CHRISTMAS in the first movie. It made me want to puke. Its the dumbest thing ever in the history of ever. Chrisitanty would burn everyone at that school at the stake, and dunk them in boiling water to see if they died.

      • Lots of Christian symbolism though...

        I read them all when I was 15, they are very good, just not written at a high level.

          Pretty sure that Christmas is celebrated almost everywhere

          Like in Japan and ****

          And it's not like they have crazy Christy Christmas with crosses and ****. They have some trees and presents. That's more about culture than it is about religion. Many atheists still have Christma celebrations. I hold Yule every year and burn oaks, that doesn't mean I'm a pagan

          • Who gives a ****, they celebrated Christmas. Big ****ing deal. You must be like the only person in the world who cares.

            Even freaking atheists celebrate Christmas if you want to argue the logic of it.

              • Also, in the fourth or fifth book they make fun of Christians and burning witches/wizards, talking about how they simply would enchant the flames to look like they were being burnt alive, and then just walk off and laugh about it later.

                  Not saying that HP is anywhere close to LOTR as far as literary skill or importance, but that doesn't make it a great series of books and a fun read.
                  dont worry bro, HP is my type just my 2nd fav

                  • JK Rowling is a great writer. She is a great STORY TELLER. It's not her writing skills that made the books it was the story telling.

                        • So,you don't care in a world with witches that Chrisitans burned at the stake, and wizards that Christians dunked in pots of water until they drowned, and magic, that Christians say is the Devil incarnate (well close enough), that anyone in Harry Potter land would celebrate a Holiday that would never exist in that land at all ever.

                          Atheists DO NOT celebrate Christmas.

                          And it does matter. How can you not get that? Harry Potter is a built on a world that the rules of the world have no meaning, no substance, and no integrity.

                          And if it doesn't matter to you, it matters to me that books I read like Sci-Fi, Fantasy, or any that build an alternate world, that the rules of that world are actually the RULES of that world, and not some convoluted mixture of rules from that world and this one, cuz the writer cannot keep them differentiated in their head.

                          Look, I get it you all love HP. No problem with that, but don't tell me its good, when it has holes the size of a Galactic Planet Destroyer inside its core and hard coding.

                          • I've literally met dozens of atheists who celebrated Christmas, so don't give me that bull****.

                            Again, read the ****ing books man. You're coming off as a raging asstard.
