Celebrating Jesus' circumcision day is something I never heard of before. It strikes me as odd, but then most religious customs seem odd to non-believers.

Re Christmas/Yule/Sunturn/Saturnalia/..., this just reinforces my point that early Christians simply repurposed an existing holiday.

There is an intimate tie between Easter and Passover (Pesach, in Hebrew). The date of Easter is calculated as the Sunday after the first full moon after March 21. But wait - this is not the real moon, but a calculated moon known as the Paschal moon. In Hebrew, Easter is known as Pascha, obviously from the same root.
Freedom is the freedom to say that two plus two make four. If that is granted, all else follows.
