Why do NON-Christians Celebrate Christmas?
Always have wondered about this one. Why would non christians decorate their homes inside and outside, buy a ton of gifts to give and receive for themselves? I dont get it. What is the point if they dont believe in Christ anyway?

Because its a fun holiday? Where I live lots of people of Indian origin are beginning to celebrate Christmas, maybe not in the religious sense, but the secular. I say the more the merrier!

Re: Why do NON-Christians Celebrate Christmas?
Why do Christians celebrate Christmas? Take Christ out of it and give it back to the cultic idoltric pagan false god worship crap it came from...to think we can make something holy out of something that couldn't be more unholy is completely insane...like God really wants to be worshipped in corrupt ways...tammuz and mithra worship practices on satanic days and we comprimised and called it good..."but that is not what it means to me" it does not matter what it means to us...WE ARE NOT THE ONES BEING WORSHIPPED, HE IS

Non Christians are just doing what has been done for thousands of years...Christmas existed before Christ, it was just called a different name...they are just participating sun god worship like pagans have for a very long time, whether they know it or not...they should be asking Christians why they are partaking in sun god worship practices if they do not want to be pagan...

Maybe because it is the one time of year for the entire family to gather together, and enjoy each others company. Almost everyone gets Christmas off, and that doesn't happen any other time of the year.

Because Christmas is not a real Christian holiday. Real Christians don't celebrate pagan holidays.

I heard a Jewish man call on a talk radio show to say that he gathers his entire family together on Hanukkah, also known as the Festival of Lights, to decorate a tree, and calls it the Unity Tree. Yeah, it's a sort of borrowed Christmas tradition with a lot of good people.

This is a happy time of the year for most people the world over. I'll just bet that they do it for the kiddos who would feel left out while their friends enjoy the tree, the lights all over the place, and the gifts.

December 25th was chosen by the Church because it puts in mind the days of the Macabbees when they cleansed the temple after it had been desecrated. It has nothing to do with a pagan holiday. It is the Jewish Hanukkah, a festive occasion.

Re: Why do NON-Christians Celebrate Christmas?
Because xmas isn't even a christian holiday, its just one they annexed in order for it to be easier to assimilate 'pagans' back when it all started?

And anyway xmas isn't about christianity, its about fat greasy home invaders who leave you stuffz, or in other words its about being programmed to spend a crapload of money in other to feed the merchants.

Re: Why do NON-Christians Celebrate Christmas?
Yeah this is what i dont get. Ive been friends with athiests who put up trees and gave presents, chistmas lunch etc...

To me the most hypocritical ones are the 'christians' who dont go to church, dont really live christian lives yet for some reason christmas comes around and they go nuts spending ridiculous money on gifts, putting up lights, decorations.

Re: Why do NON-Christians Celebrate Christmas?
Societal pressure is why. Though it's really about the re-birth of the SUN, not son. Madison Avenue mostly. I haven't brought presents in years, though I do celebrate solstice and the rebirth (when the SUN gets moving again).

MERRY SOLSTICE EVERYONE!!

Re: Why do NON-Christians Celebrate Christmas?
Got to love how religitards think they own something just because its in some book somewhere, and outright refuse to even think about the possibility that they have very little to do with it in reality, like most of their big holidays which are really pagan celebrations that pre-date christianity by quite a lot.

We don't celebrate Christmas as religious holiday. We celebrate it as it truly is: a very marketable, cross cultural, capitolistic holiday dedicted to the shrine of commercialism and overabundance.

The goodies dude... The goodies.

But personally, I can't figure out why CHRISTIANS involve themselves with pagan sun worship, and Babylonian mystery religion. Christmas isn't even Christs birthday, but rather Mithra's birthday.

Christmas was actually ILLEGAL here in this country at one time, due to it's Catholic (and pagan Babylonian) origin.

Re: Why do NON-Christians Celebrate Christmas?
As has been said, "Christmas" is a blend of all sorts of things, and it is certainly not exclusively Christian. I mean, what is Christian about a spruce tree? It's all about being in the depth of winter and celebrating the turning of the year towards the light. There are indeed some convenient allegories here (the long dark night of the soul...), but looking forward to the return of warmth and life is part of being human, not Christian. We've been celebrating that for thousands of years, everywhere that has a winter. The tradition was just pinched as a convenient date for Jesus' birthday - and not even all sects of Christianity use the same date.

Aside from the turning of the seasons, what better time to get together with family, exchange stories and gifts to brighten up the dark nights, and cook a lavish meal to cheer everyone up? Christianity has tried to take over something that originally belonged to everyone. I personally take part in Christmas because it's a great, traditional festival that is part of a much deeper history, an it still serves its purpose today. You won't catch me going to a church, though.

I really wish Christians would stop trying to take over over other people's traditions, and then say that we're not allowed to do as we've always done unless we give in and take on their pet belief system. Sheesh. It's not as if your belief is any better than anyone else's, you know?

That's quite a stretch. It makes me wonder what you use for a calendar since, you know, a calendar has all those pagan names for days of the week and months of the year.
We become like that to which we are devoted. Choose wisely.

Bingo!
Ask a Christian about the twelve days of Christmas. Most I've asked don't have the slightest idea what it is, many think it's just from the song "The Twelve Days Of Christmas". That's how friggin' commercial Christmas has become...that even many Christians have bought into big time to become this time of greed, gluttony, vanity and selfishness all brought on in the name of profit...and then get offended when "non Christians" celebrate it. What a sad joke.

Hello,

I consider myself agnostic and have never celebrated Christmas except for this year...

My current boyfriend has a 6 year old son and I celebrated with them this year. =)

It was nice.

Its NOT a christian holiday. Its way way older then the christian religion. Its caled Jul as in wheel and is an ancient celebration of the wheel of life from the 21st to the 1st
