Just thinking about the song about the boy in the mall who says, "Where's the line to see Jesus? Is He here at the mall? If Christmastime is His birthday, why don't we see Him more?..."
Don't get me wrong. I'm a Christian and I love this opportunity to remember and be grateful for what Christ did. Personally, I don't get into the commercialism, and our family doesn't do Santa. I want my children to grow up seeing Christmas as a time to give to needy, not all about getting presents. That's my choice.
HOWEVER, we Christians "converted" Christmas from a pagan holiday to suit our purposes, and then some act like everyone should celebrate it the way we do. Since December 25 never was His birthday, and He obviously didn't expect us to remember His birthday or He would have told us when it was, I hardly think He's going to be offended because some people are more interested in Santa than in the nativity.

I say celebrate it for whatever reason you want and don't be so technical about everything. :)
To each their own. I know it's one of those cheesy little sayings, but it fits.
