You're not supposed to have a Christmas tree if You're Christian

Jeremiah 10: 1-5 does talk about cutting down a tree and decorating it.
God and Idols 
1 Hear what the LORD says to you, O house of Israel. 2 This is what the LORD says: 
  "Do not learn the ways of the nations 
  or be terrified by signs in the sky, 
  though the nations are terrified by them. 
3 For the customs of the peoples are worthless; 
  they cut a tree out of the forest, 
  and a craftsman shapes it with his chisel. 

4 They adorn it with silver and gold; 
  they fasten it with hammer and nails 
  so it will not totter. 

5 Like a scarecrow in a melon patch, 
  their idols cannot speak; 
  they must be carried 
  because they cannot walk. 
  Do not fear them; 
  they can do no harm 
  nor can they do any good."

I don't worship the Christmas tree, therefore it's not an idol.

I'm an atheist and i still do Christmas with the tree and all. sure some people will have something to say about that but i look at it as fun family time and an excuse to give gifts and have a big dinner etc.. lol 

I do agree with all that you just posted though.
