there was a question about only having a few presents for Christmas and I basically said-we are in the same boat-that we won't have much either and I am goona bake cookies and we will go look at lights and that we have our decorations and movies and hot choco and would make the best of it with those things and someone had suggested (before my answer) that the reason for the holiday is Jesus anyhow and not to worry about gifts or whatever-so I added that for us it isn't about Jesus.
ANYHOW, an anonymous poster then says this: "Then WHY do you celebrate CHRISTMAS--- Good Grief... some people have absolutely NO CLUE. If you don't believe in Jesus... then there is no reason to even celebrate..." to which I replied: "

Well thats just silly. Even if you aren't christian you can celebrate the reason for the season...and I DONT mean the birth of Christ but what that birth stood for. Hope, and love, and giving. Many people on here get testy and point out things like Christ wasnt REALLY born on Dec 25th and that its ORIGINALLY a PAGAN holiday and therefor Christians are stupid. Neither of these helps anyone and are JUST as disrespectful as the response you were given before! Just curious, do you say Merry Christmas? Do the santa thing? I dont think people need to get so hung up on who is right or wrong....and I mean BOTH sides!

..I guess my question is basically- why do you guys think it is a big deal to her if I or anyone else who isn't Christian to like the season and the decorations and whatnot...
If anyone at all is the least bit concerned about it, they don't have enough to do.
That includes you.
