Whether they really understand or not, it sure is fun teaching them! My daughter is 2 and 3 months. She helped decorate the tree, we have a homemade advent calendar that we put Christmas stickers on each day, she will see Santa, we are taking her to a bunch of different Christmas/holiday/winter celebrations, and of course I have explained to her about presents. As more lights go up, we will look at them. We aren't religious, so we don't talk a lot about the birth of Jesus.
She understood Halloween, still talks about it! So yeah, I think a 2 year old can enjoy Christmas whether or not they understand all the nuances.
