just wondering why do non christians do christmas.
i am a christian it sort ticks me off when people do it. just wondering why


I don't have to be a Christian to appreciate what Jesus the Philosopher stood for. Peace, love, equality. I think we can all celebrate that this time of year, no?

It is also Yule. Winter Solstice is viewed as a time of devine births. The Goddess gave birth to the Sun God. Dec 21.

Sound familiar?

[quote name='goddessofmyworld']The tree thing is definitely christian. It represents many things that have to do with the birth of Jesus./QUOTE]

You really should do some study into the holidays you celebrate. It will give you a deeper appreciation for them.

If more Christians focused on their own celebration of the birth of their savior and less on what was going on in other peoples homes it would be a significantly better holiday for all.

I do believe the man existed. He is mentioned by an impartial historian as one of many messiah's of the time. None of his miracles or anything are mentioned, just that a Rabi with radical ideas was around. The gospels themselves can't get the story straight, for instance, who saw Jesus after he rose? They don't even agree on that simple story, which leads me to believe there were a lot of stories and speculations at the time. That probably explains the picking and choosing of which stories make up the bible by a bunch of politicians.

Anywho, I believe what I believe, I celebrate Christmas which is a holiday that has absorbed many pagan rituals, (christmas trees for example), because I think its a nice holiday and the overall message of Peace and good will toward men is a good one. :)

I don't bash you for why you want to celebrate it.
