there is slight truth to what you say. But facts on Mithraism are scant at best. Any correlation between Mithras and Christianity go back to one line in Justin Martyr's "First Apology", and it seemed to snowball from there. Furthermore, no one is celebrating Mithrasmas.
And as far as the Saturnalia correlation, that has no relevance today. As far as it matters to anyone today, the day could have been picked at random.
You and the world still call it Christmas, and are not celebrating because of Saturnalia, Mithras, or because of anyone or anything else.

Good day.

gabe,
By that logic, all Christians are really only celebrating the pagan holiday of Saturnalia, since that's the holiday that the Romans took at this time of year, and since the trappings of Christmas were borrowed from other pagan traditions.

The power of Mithras compels you! And you can't even deny it.
