  • momavanessa is right. My Dad doesn't celebrate Christmas and he's definitely not JW. There are lots of Christian denominations that teach against celebrating Christmas. Mostly staunch Protestant legalists who want as far distance between themselves and the Catholic church as possible.

  • Don't know. Perhaps they're trying to get a rise out of you.

    Ignore 'em.

  • Most of the people that bash Christians for celebrating Christmas are other Christians...

  • I don't know!  Maybe for the same reason that Christians bash non-believers for celebrating Christmas.

  • From the point of view of someone who has more than once pointed out that Christmas is not Jesus's actual birthday, let me tell you why.

    We don't mind you celebrating Christmas, or how you celebrate it, or even whatever you choose to celebrate on that day. Celebrating a birthday on a day other than the actual date is not unheard of. If that is the day that your entire faith has chosen to honor your "savior" then more power to you. Please observe one thing about those that point out the falsehoods of that holiday though...

    A great deal of the time we are doing it because the CHRISTIANS are telling us we don't have the right to celebrate OUR HOLIDAY, (you know, the one Christmas is based on, Yule) on Christmas. It is really only to those that are super judgemental that most of us choose to "enlighten" about the true origins of Christmas. At least in my experience...

This flood gate flows both ways! Bashing on either side isn't good but Christians do it just as much if not worse than non christians. So your offended so are we. Especially considering we (pagans) had the holiday first. You celebrate how you want to celebrate I will celebrate how I want to. But don't for one minute think you own the holiday just because a few centuries ago one of your religious leaders decided to take it over.
