Sam and Dean follow the trail of an Anti-Claus when victims are apparently pulled up the chimney never to be seen again. After a lead goes nowhere, the Winchesters learn the Anti-Claus in in fact a pair of old pagan gods who have assimilated into society and have found a new way of getting their yearly sacrifices. A flashback to Christmas Eve 1991 reveals how Sam found out for the first time what their father really did and where Dean got his gold amulet. Written by Derfel85

About Paganism
18 December 2007 | by amandabickleSee all my reviews

My name is Amanda. I have a comment to make about the episode "A Very Ssupernatural Christmas". Please don't take this in a negative way but I really wish writers would do their research before putting negative connotations on other religions or ways of life. I am Pagan and anyone who knows anything about it, knows that there is nothing evil about it. We live by one rule and one rule only. Harm None! We are peaceful people who live in harmony with the earth, the universe and the people around us.

One of the toughest battles we have come across is trying to survive in the world with out being looked at in the shadow that Hollywood has cast upon us. Wearing a pentacle instead of a cross these days causes turmoil in the workplace, schools and public places. How can Paganism be evil when we don't even believe in the devil? Because if misinformation fed to the public on a regular basis, people relate ritual to cutting arms and pulling out fingernails and teeth. Our ritual is really no different then a catholic priest smudging the church before mass.

I'm not looking for apologies or anything, all I am asking for is that when you are writing, please be aware of what you are putting on national television for the public to absorb.

I have to admit that at this joyful happy time of Yule, it really saddened me as I watched this episode. I understand that it is television, and that people should be judgmental of what they are watching, but If an episode came out where it was shown that it is custom in the catholic religion to molest children, especially at Christmas time, there would be an uproar. I hope you have a happy holiday season. Bright Blessings Amanda
