How can you celebrate christmas and not believe in God?

I have a friend that celebrates this holiday and most christian holidays but she doesn't believe. That I think is hypricritical. if you don't believe than don't celebrate these or any other holidays because this holiday is about the birth of jesus which is the son of God. I believe in god and I just started to go back to church again with my dd and I was just wondering. what does everyone else thing of those people that celebrate and don't believe?

  • Kudos for picking the subject that got a lot of attention here. Two years ago.

  • Some people just like the celebration part of it. To each his own. Why should anyone have to justify celebrating whatever they please?

  • I can celebrate it because it was a celebration that existed long before Christianity came along. Christianity claimed it and used it for its own purposes, but it was around long before then. I can also celebrate it because I can do anything I want. I don't need the permission of any religion, its followers or its leader to do so.

    So let me ask you this: If you don't believe in any of the things that the holiday stood for before Christianity came along and changed it, why do you still do things like use a Christmas tree or use the colors red and green?

  • *sigh* dammit, I fell into the trap, didn't I?

    Ugh. Off to do something constructive and useful.
