    I get what you are saying... but yeah. Christmas is a Christian holiday and they live around the world, not just America.

    Actually I want to know as well.

    I get that we celebrate it en masse in this country, but it really has nothing to do with being an American.

    Perhaps a small part of the American experience, but Christmas has nothing to do with being American.

    Let's end Columbus day and rename the Washington Redskins in one full swoop. And just be done with it. It could be Obama's final **** you to Redneck Nation.

    Call it, Discovery day where can learn about different positive discoveries from a variety of explorers. We can also relate this to the early settlers in their enlightened discovery of equality via constitution. Sadly, society is too complacent with the removal of Columbus, giving the economical benefit by that holiday.

    I live in New Zealand. They celebrate Christmas here.

    ...and Kiwis (13th) are rated happier than Americans (17th) in the latest world rankings.
