    Its a celebration of Jesus Christ(mas)... People in CHRISTianity worships Jesus and his statues as if he were a God. Jesus Christ is THE center of the CHRISTian belief and has become the most important part of the "holy trinity".

    Oh wow, I guess if you change the name of a celebration by putting Christ in the name, it completely erases the origins of that holiday as well.

    What does the date of Dec. 25th have to do w/ Christ? What do the festivities have to do w/ Christianity? Are you honestly ignorant to the fact that the entire holiday was stolen from pagan traditions?

    The fact that Christians celebrate on the 25th is a bronze age marketing ploy.

    Christmas -- Britannica Online Encyclopedia

    I am not Christian, and I personally believe Jesus was despicable man, even a con artist who lead billions of people into sin the next 2000 years and still, many people have lead others into sin, but not on the same scale as Jesus Christ. But Christmas is in his honor, no doubt about that.
    It may or may not be that others also celebrate something else around the same dates, but if they aren't Christians and still call it Christmas then they must be pretty damn foolish. The themes of Christmas may have been robbed from somewhere else, perhaps thats what you mean? But then again, what better can you expect from Christians?

    Heaven is a communist dictatorship.

    Jesus was a liberal Hippie.

    Yet it is Republicans who are the most religious.

    Interesting.

    Re: Non Christians Celebrating Christmas

    I voted other because I am a 'Christian' and not unlike atheists who celebrate Christmas because of family I only participate (more like only physically present) because of my family and their personal enjoyment of this faux holiday.

    I have grown to despise this 'holiday' and have become more Scrooge like over the last two decades so Bah-****ing-Humbug on Christmas. Let it become the secular retail money making holiday it is designed to be and take 'Christ' out of it completely.

    I'm guessing you won, glad to see you're still with us.
    Neither side in an argument can find the truth when both make an absolute claim on it.

    Re: Non Christians Celebrating Christmas

    Have we mentioned people of other religions celebrating Christmas? My friends who were Jewish used to get Hanuka presents, but their big presents would come Christmas morning.

    And those kid's dads owned the department stores!

    Re: Non Christians Celebrating Christmas

    We all just view it as a Family Holiday.
    We have and do nothing with Christ ir Christianity...
    Even my Born Again uncle just treats it as a Family Holiday, since we all do.

    It is fun seeing the family and playing table tennis and having the little kids running around!

    Oh, and the food rocks!
