      Enough of these upset Hindu articles.

      Nobody cares.

      Many if not most non-Hindu people think that Hinduism is a bunch of weird & over-the-top fairy tales with flying monkey gods from the Wizard of Oz. And that's outside of the realm of video games.

      Until people start celebrating Christmas & Easter for its true (non-commercialized) religious reasons on a global scale and stop insulting Christians as the butt end of jokes in pop-media.... then why do you think that people should care about some no-name video game.

      many people celebrate Christmas for its true meaning, its called Saturnalia, the pagan holiday that was "stolen" for convenience and nothing at all to do with the birth of Jesus, but i guess that is an inconvenient truth.

      Eh no... Christmas is the celebration of Jesus' birth. All be it, that some cultures have incorporated their old pagan rituals into the Christian event such as the Christmas Tree. Whether the calendar timing is right or wrong, doesn't matter. Orthodox Christians celebrate at a different time than Catholics for example.

      What remains the same is the acknowledgement of Jesus' birth and death.

      Point being that Jesus has taken back seat in favour of other commercialized messages and values. Which piggy back on Christian celebrations and ignore their values.

      Gift giving on Christmas has Christian roots. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Saint_Nicholas

      Western culture has taken that concept of simple gift giving and raped that idea all the way to the bank.

      Santa isn't real... right? Wrong. Even Coca-Cola won't admit the Santa Claus was really a real life gift giving Christian Saint.

      Even today in some countries, Christmas still hasn't been perverted by ideas of non-religious consumerism.

      Seem like the truth isn't inconvenient, it just lacks proper timing.
