XMAS and Christmas

This is a bit difficult read but a very nice one: XMAS and Christmas: A Lost Chapter from Herodotus by C.S. Lewis (in JP).
Why do people start the Christmas preparation in November? Why even those who do not celebrate Christmas deal with Christmas decorations? Why `Christmas decorations` we find in shops have so little to do with Christmas? The author writes about these questions in a very smart and entertaining way. But he gives no answers to them – so maybe you can think about it?
