You see, 'neopaganism' has nothing to do with real paganism and everything to do with antichristianism.
Real pagans celebrated Saturnalia -- if they were Romans or Quviasukvik -- if they are Eskimos. The Germanic tribes had a winter feast day no doubt dedicated to Freyr or Baldr and the Patagonians no doubt have a feast day in honor of Setebos, but only an astronomer would celebrate the solstice because this is an astronomical term devoid of any cultural, ethnic, or religious meaning.
Real pagans were willing to fight for the ashes of their fathers and the altars of their gods, and practiced patriotism as indistinguishable from civic piety.
However, if you are a neopagan (and you joined the coven so that you could both rebel against your parents, find some comfort in a vague 'spirituality' that makes no spiritual demands of you, and continue your various perversions and sins without those nassty Christians condemning you) why, you dare not practice what real pagans practiced, because how could you indulge in pagan ancestor worship if your ancestors are Christian?
