    Maybe the most common reason.

    But fear can also be a reason - by many.

    There can be all sorts of reasons. But why would anyone satisfied with their current religious celebrations even consider trying others?
    Remember Bowling Green! Remember Atlanta! Remember Sweden!

    It is not about trying.
    It is about interest.

    Would you never vistit a friend in his or her house, because you like your own house so much?

    I would or should be interested in spending time with a friend anywhere. There is not necessarily interest in religious celebrations any more than any other random event. Is everyone supposed to be interested in opera or ballet just because they like music or dancing?

    Not everybody - but some.

    People are usually born into a religion they keep on the back burner all their life.

    Generally when they convert to another religion, it is not because of the religion,
    but rather their new group of friends.
    Then as time goes on, they learn about the religion.

    But you seem to think it should be a natural inclination, when it comes to religious celebrations, with the main deterrent being fear. I strongly disagree with that conclusion.

    Everyone should celebrate the death, burial and resurrection, if not also the birth, of Jesus Christ.
