The average Christian's head would explode if they realized that most of their religious traditions (and even the holidays themselves) were co-opted from pagan faiths and practices that date back to the dawn of man. Especially the fundies: They are taught no history of their own faith. (Been there, done that, still have panic attacks about the rapture.)

4. Or even the religion itself.
Virgin-born messiahs were not unheard of prior to Xianity, nor were gods that sacrificed themselves to redeem the world. It's truly more difficult to find things in Xianity that are unique rather than borrowed or stolen from other religions. (http://www.infidels.org/library/magazines/tsr/1994/4/4zoroa94.html)

Talk about making their heads explode!
