    You mean there probably was once a person called Jesus of Nazareth which the bible says is the son of god but there is not historical evidence for the birth of a son of god. That is religion/faith, not historical facts.

    For most Dutch people it is just as much an atheist celebration as it is a religious one for Christians.

    That is true but it does not change the fact that he was born.
