What is Christmas?

In trying to explain Christmas to my two year old I have discovered even more disparity in the way it is celebrated than I ever thought possible.

What is the connection between giving gifts to one another and the birth of Jesus?

What is the connection between a Christmas tree and the birth of Jesus?

What is the connection between the snowmen and the birth of Jesus?

Or the Christmas lights?

Or all the baked goods?

How do I explain this disparity to my kids? Should we even be doing some of the things we do?
