It might be of interest to look up the origin of the Christmas tree, then one might reconsider if Jesus would decorate such a thing. It is also of interest that no where in the Bible do we find Jesus or any other First Century Christian decorating a tree or observing any other part this celebration.
 Quoting: CelestialMaiden


My friend, I suppose you are going to quote dear old Jeremiah 10 now. Don't bother as it has nothing to do with Christmas.

Or perhaps you will tell me that it's PAGAN!!

Would you like to have a conversation on that subject?

About which part?
 Quoting: Life and Love


The part where Jesus directs his disciples to memoralize his birthday and lace it pagan customs.

 Quoting: Life and Love


Jesus directed his disciples to memorialize his sacrificial death. In the fourth century the apostate church tried to 'Christianize' the pagan Roman Saturnalia buy making a birthday for Jesus concurrently.

"Also, he took a loaf, gave thanks, broke it, and gave it to them, saying: “This means my body which is to be given in YOUR behalf. Keep doing this in remembrance of me.” 20 Also, the cup in the same way after they had the evening meal, he saying: “This cup means the new covenant by virtue of my blood, which is to be poured out in YOUR behalf.....
28 “However, YOU are the ones that have stuck with me in my trials; 29 and I make a covenant with YOU, just as my Father has made a covenant with me, for a kingdom, 30 that YOU may eat and drink at my table in my kingdom, and sit on thrones to judge the twelve tribes of Israel." Lk22:19

IF one can prove with scripture that Christmas originated with Christ, then that would be a welcome subject
 Quoting: CelestialMaiden


Why is this so important to you? 99.99% of everything we do didn't originate with Jesus. So why pick on one thing?

What is important - and what we should be striving for - is that you are immensely loved and have incredible worth in the eyes of Father. May we all open our hearts widely to receive that love. If we can do that, most everything else falls into its proper place.

Blessings.
 Quoting: Life and Love


"God is a spirit, and those worshipping him must worship with spirit and TRUTH "-John 4:24- so, obviously TRUTH is involved if we are to accept Gods love and have him accept our worship of him. So, when we teach our children to believe in Santa Clause - is that TRUTH? And when they find out mom and dad lied to them, that there is no such thing as "Santa", what basis do they have to believe mom and dad when they tell them there is a God? is that a lie too?

That's an objective and commendable perspective, it's what Jesus set as example for us all to achieve. Jehovah's international spiritual nation is displaying this around the world, resolving political/religious/racial rivalries over who's better than the other and becoming 'fitly united in one mind' (1Cor1:10) Everyone's invited;
" After these things I saw, and, look! a great crowd, which no man was able to number, out of all nations and tribes and peoples and tongues, standing before the throne and before the Lamb, dressed in white robes; and there were palm branches in their hands. 10 And they keep on crying with a loud voice, saying: “Salvation [we owe] to our God, who is seated on the throne, and to the Lamb.”
... “These are the ones that come out of the great tribulation, and they have washed their robes and made them white in the blood of the Lamb. 15 That is why they are before the throne of God; and they are rendering him sacred service day and night in his temple; and the One seated on the throne will spread his tent over them. 16 They will hunger no more nor thirst anymore, neither will the sun beat down upon them nor any scorching heat, 17 because the Lamb, who is in the midst of the throne, will shepherd them, and will guide them to fountains of waters of life. And God will wipe out every tear from their eyes." Rv7:9

I'd tell him so he can give me a present.
 Quoting: Dr. Greenthumb


He's already given the greatest possible present, the opportunity to live forever and make global Garden of Eden;
"“For God loved the world so much that he gave his only-begotten Son, in order that everyone exercising faith in him might not be destroyed but have everlasting life. 17 For God sent forth his Son into the world, not for him to judge the world, but for the world to be saved through him. 18 He that exercises faith in him is not to be judged. He that does not exercise faith has been judged already, because he has not exercised faith in the name of the only-begotten Son of God. 19 Now this is the basis for judgment, that the light has come into the world but men have loved the darkness rather than the light, for their works were wicked. 20 For he that practices vile things hates the light and does not come to the light, in order that his works may not be reproved. 21 But he that does what is true comes to the light, in order that his works may be made manifest as having been worked in harmony with God.” Jo3:16

I would tell Him it is because it is tradition to mark the winter solstice with celebration, and i would thank Him for His testamony to the truth that may one day make all men free. Free of violence, free of ignorant stupidity, free of depravity and free of sin & death. That due to the memory of what He did, one day this world might become as God intented and that all souls might yet again know their creator instead of believing they are an orphaned cosmic accident.
 Quoting: Anonymous 29620353


we can show our appreciation for the memory of what he did by observing the one thing he commanded us to observe, the The Memorial of Christ's Death. "...and, accepting a cup, he gave thanks and said: "Take this and pass it from one to the other among yourselves....Also, he took a loaf, gave thanks, broke it, and gave it to them, saying: " This means my body which is to be given in your behalf.

That's an interesting reason that you don't celebrate Christmas. people are looking for a meaning in life and find that Holidays leave them feeling empty and devoid of answers. The night Jesus died for us, on the other hand, provides us with much hope and can give our life real meaning, and a future of everlasting life on a paradise earth.

"Do not be misled, my beloved brothers. 17 Every good gift and every perfect present is from above, for it comes down from the Father of the [CELESTIAL] lights, and with him there is not a variation of the turning of the shadow. 18 Because he willed it, he brought us forth by the word of truth, for us to be certain firstfruits of his creatures."

Re: if
Thank you. hf

Is what I'd say.
 Quoting: pi


yes, so few say thank you- that's very unselfish of you! in what ways do you think we might say " thank you" back to him?
 Quoting: CelestialMaiden


Well for one trivial example....
"When the wine ran short the mother of Jesus said to him: “They have no wine.” 4 But Jesus said to her: “What have I to do with you, woman? My hour has not yet come.” 5 His mother said to those ministering: “Whatever he tells YOU, do.” 6 As it was, there were six stone water jars sitting there as required by the purification rules of the Jews, each able to hold two or three liquid measures. 7 Jesus said to them: “Fill the water jars with water.” And they filled them to the brim. 8 And he said to them: “Draw some out now and take it to the director of the feast.” So they took it. 9 When, now, the director of the feast tasted the water that had been turned into wine but did not know what its source was, although those ministering who had drawn out the water knew, the director of the feast called the bridegroom 10 and said to him: “Every other man puts out the fine wine first, and when people are intoxicated, the inferior. You have reserved the fine wine until now.” 11 Jesus performed this in Ca′na of Gal′i·lee as [the] beginning of his signs, and he made his glory manifest; and his disciples put their faith in him." Jo2:3

Re: if
It just occured to me this morning..

How could a country of Protestants possibly end-up celebrating

ChristMAS?
 Quoting: Being * gnieB


the same might be asked of Japan, who are mostly Shinto- just how HAS Christmas become so important to ones who do and do not even confess belief in Christ?

Re: if
if Jesus were here tonight in your living room and asked why you celebrate Christmas, what would you tell him?
 Quoting: CelestialMaiden


Well for one, he wouldn't, but it would be to tell him the truth, just like I'm telling you. Right Now.

For Thanks :)
 Quoting: Kii of Earth


no, you are right, he wouldn't actually be in our living rooms, but as he looks down from Heaven and watches the activities of man, he looks for one's, who, are seeking to : " worship the Father with spirit and truth"_ John 4:24-

So... is this what Jesus miraculous wine prefigured?

" And Jehovah of armies will certainly make for all the peoples, in this mountain, a banquet of well-oiled dishes, a banquet of [wine kept on] the dregs, of well-oiled dishes filled with marrow, of [wine kept on] the dregs, filtered. 7 And in this mountain he will certainly swallow up the face of the envelopment that is enveloping over all the peoples, and the woven work that is interwoven upon all the nations. 8 He will actually swallow up death forever, and the Sovereign Lord Jehovah will certainly wipe the tears from all faces. And the reproach of his people he will take away from all the earth, for Jehovah himself has spoken [it]." Isa25:6
