  • My husband is Christian, although he isn't really practicing. We'll continue to celebrate Christmas as tradition and as celebration of Jesus' birth.

  • We celebrate Christmas in my house, too. We just skip over the religious part of it. Its a gift-giving, economy-stimulating event in our house. I also enjoy seeing my family and decorating for Santa, even though my kids are wayyyy too old. Good question, though.

  • We celebrate Christmas but we are atheist. Santa is the reason for our season. It is about family and giving, we do all the decorating and baking and shopping but we do it without religion.

  • We all Celebrate Christmas as a time for family and decorations and Santa Clause and presents. I don't know if we all believe that Jesus was the Son Of God, but we don't all really see it as the Birth of Christ.We see it as a Holiday. Besides, many people have different opinions of when he was really born anyway.
