    According to several atheists in this thread, it is not.

    As relevant as the Iraq war.

    I thought, seeing as the man in your avatar is the one who signed into law the legalization of abortion in the largest state in the county, which resulted in millions of abortions...

    It is a holiday with its roots in many religions prior to christianity. Of course, it is basically winter solstice and saturnalia.

    Which is why Festivus is so hilarious, and how it has garnered so many adherents that know it is pure fictional jest.

    But as there is not evidence that this is the person out of the bible, it does not mean a whole lot to me that is. I am only talking about me personally, not about other people, like you who have the faith that he is. And I respect that faith but I am not going to then agree to some son of god assignation to someone that may or may not have been born at that time. For all we know this is a totally different jesus.

    "Lefties hate christmas?"

    wow talk about a failed call out thread . . .anyway . . thats funny.

    Im not a righty or a lefty so i can't answer the also failed poll but I love christmas . . .LOOOOOVE CHRISTMAS.

    I also agree with Ben in many ways but not 100%

    All my life CHristmas, the holiday, as always been about love, peace, giving and family.

    Any religious meanings around it are personal(which my family does do) and they haven't been dominate at any time in my life. CHristmas is much bigger than that in reality and always has been in my lifetime. While the holiday coincides with religion it hasnt been solely about religion anytime in recent past. Same goes for Easter & Halloween, they are all just as religious as thanksgiving . . . not very much at all . . unless people choose that in thier personal lives. Do they have religious ties? of course but the secular part is very much reality and clearly larger part current times and the recent past
