    Re: Non Christians Celebrating Christmas

    I love giving gifts to family and friends. I know of one family member who finds it offensive that I celebrate Christmas in this manner, being that I'm an atheist, but I don't think one has to be a Christian to enjoy the holiday.

    Why would it be offensive? It's not like we have some other God that we're dissing. Christmas is only connected by a frayed thread to Christianity at this point, anyway.

    Re: Non Christians Celebrating Christmas

    Considering the fact that it really isn't a Christian holiday (Christ wasn't born on December 25th and the holiday originates in pagan festivals celebrating the winter solstice - hence the tree), they really don't have much of a right getting "offended" that non-Christians are celebrating it. After all, they're not pagan either.

    Yes I celebrate it, because my family do, but also because Christmas doesn't have a thing to do w/ Christianity.

    It's simply not a religious holiday for many of us, anymore than Halloween is.
    Ignorance is the refuge of faith
    It's become very apparent that there is nothing respectable about faith

    Re: Non Christians Celebrating Christmas

    It's a day of celebrating your family and friends and the ties of good cheer and kindness that bond us together. That's worth celebrating.

    Just because I prefer to celebrate it with hard liquor and Russian Roulette doesn't mean that I don't celebrate.
