Why wouldn't we?

To answer the question, I'm celebrating the spirit of giving, family, and such as.

Why do you observe Christmas? What are you celebrating?

Have you ever seen a kid's face on Christmas morning?

Have you ever been a kid on Christmas morning?

What is your definition of a "non-christian?"

We have no kids, but we have a "god-daughter" (a term I have no clue what it means), a couple nephews and friends with kids. My wife and I do not exchange any gifts; rather we give to others, our respective employees, the charity I'm on the board of and the Goodwill by cleaning out my closets and dressers of old clothes.

Surely at this point there aren't any Christians ignorant to the fact that the holiday was originally pagan. It seems really stupid to now judge the who or why of celebrating it.

For the long held Winter Solstice celebration of course!

Making merry, gift exchanges and decorating the home with green tree trimmings to signify that life endures in the midst of winter.

It is a traditional holiday going back well beyond Christmas, celebrating the earth's coming new year, as the ancients realized that daylight increases from this point forward.

As you may know, the Winter Solstice celebration was recently co-opted by the Roman Empire when Catholicism was incorporated as the state's official religion.

It is believed Roman leaders did this because they knew the public would be unhappy giving up traditional pagan celebrations, so they just gave the holiday a new name and continued to celebrate.

Same thing happened with Easter. Ever wonder what bird eggs and bunny rabbits had to do with Christ's death?

As a Christian, why would you celebrate a pagan holiday like the Winter Solstice?

You know there is an excellent chance Christ was not born on December 25th.

I'm sure you are only praising Jesus and nothing else.

Serious conversations please. Very curious to hear people's opinions on the subject.

I guess you can say I make it a dual celebration.

It's a reason to get the whole family together.

Nobody is religious among us, but that is never acknowledged. We're all happy to see each other and that's all that matters :)

I like giving presents, decorating the house, & cooking. Why do you ask?

Well as Christian, I always observe the birth of Christ along with Christmas. But I was curious of the mindset of those who are not Religious their reasons for celebrating Christmas. As mentioned before, I would think it would just be like having a 2nd Thanksgiving for those people who aren't religious. I'm not knocking you guys, believe what you want. But I was just genuinely curious.
