Christmas has always been about materialism, ALWAYS, and its cloaked with the idea "oh, its all for Jesus and God and blah blah blah."
I only really celebrate Diwali, which is never material in my family.
That's probably doubled in Texas though, where people rub it in your face if your not Christian.
Just like Korimyr, I will wish people socially, but personally its all pointless.
I cannot answer this poll, because you left out the most important choice:
Flatus day - This is where I go throughout the world, spreading my winds of good will to all, and getting bricks thrown at me for my efforts.

As far as talk like a pirate day, no need for it living in Tampa, we have get drunk, smoke cigars, and be a pirate day here, the annual Gasparilla parade and pirate invasion:
Gasparilla Pirate Fest - Tampa, Florida - The Parade of Pirates

Drugs are bad, prohibition is worse
My "personal" holiday celebration is Christmas. However, I have enjoyed going to many Hannukkah and Kwanza celebrations at friends houses...and go whenever I am invited. I invite my Jewish and non-Christian friends to my Christmas party every year...and they come and enjoy that as well.
That is what the "Holiday Season" is all about.
Women (Nasty or otherwise) are going to be the reason that Donald Trump is NEVER President!
