  • Well depends on your point of view I guess. We dont' ever go to church, I don't like or believe in Church. But I do thank God every chance I get for the life he's given me and the Children he's let me raise. I say special prayers on Christmas and thank Christ for dying for us. I would love to go to Midnight Mass, but I dont' have anyone to go with lol

  • It isn't a religious Holiday for us. My husband is Athiest and I'm Agnostic, so we dont' celebrate religion at all. We make it a family Holiday by doing things as a family. Whether it's baking, sitting together and talking, or watching the parades on the TV. My husband and I are still creating traditions for our family, as it's only our third Christmas together. Therefore, we haven't really gotten into a Holiday routine yet.

  • Yes, it is. We go to church, for starters. It's always been a religious holiday to me.

  • I don't view it as Christ's Birthday...because I know historically that it is not, its just a christian adaptation of pagan holidays. However, I do use it as a time to spend with family and friends, and I try to focus on that aspect instead of the materialistic aspect of the holiday.
