I'm sure there are some Jews on here and I know there's at least one Muslim. There's an atheist, too, but the way we celebrate Christmas these days isn't really religious for the most part.
Hey Ghost, I hope you still have a great day.
And that is ENOUGH down votes for Ghost.
For the love of God, people! Down voting to try and show someone the love of Jesus on Christmas? Really?
Look, Ghost, I know you have your reasons, and I'm fine with that, just know there are Christians who try to show Jesus' love to people, instead of trying to force people to love Jesus.

phillipians 4:13 CAN-DO all things through Christ which strengthens me.
I respectfully disagree with what you said. The only reason I celebrate CHRISTmas is because of Jesus. When I think about what He's done for me, I can't help myself but to celebrate HIM! He died for me. He had to be born before He could die for us!
Merry Christmas and may you experience the Greatest Gift ever Given......JESUS!
Merry Christmas brother!
The question is not about how much you know, it's how much of what you know do you apply?
So you don't buy presents?

Merry Christmas to you from the Logan's!!!
One of the main reasons we have the custom of giving and receiving presents at Christmas, is to remind us of the presents given to Jesus by the Wise Men: Frankincense, Gold and Myrrh.
Frankincense was a perfume used in Jewish worship and, as a gift, it showed that people would worship Jesus.
Gold was associated with Kings and Christians believe that Jesus is the King of Kings.
Myrrh was a perfume that was put on dead bodies to make them smell nice and, as a gift, it showed that Jesus would suffer and die.
Merry Christmas!!!! Celebrating my first without my Mom who passed on the 12/12/12. Emotional day for sure.
I celebrate it but I don't really like the holidays.
Choose not a life of limitation
We actually give presents because of the Roman holiday of Saturnalia. Most of our Christmas traditions are pre Christian pagan in origin. So the holier than thou responses ITT are unnecessary.
Precisely. You can celebrate it however you like but buying presents and sticking them under a tree isn't religious. Neither are cookies, wreaths, or Santa hats. Jesus wasn't even born in December. Christmas has become much more a celebration of family than of the birth of Jesus, which is why non-Christians can and do celebrate it, the very point I was trying to make. If it hold religious significance to you, there's nothing wrong with that; I'm just speaking about our society as a whole.
May the Lord Bless you and your family today.
I know Wal Mart, Target and all the malls sure do enjoy it. Not the folks that work there but the folks that run it. Christmas is special for the children and there parents who get to see there eyes light up Christmas morning. Buying a gift for every person you know is silly and a waste of money imo. Give it to charity etc...
Thanks Brother. RTR
