    A paedophile's dream. A fat old man visiting little children in the dead of the night to give them 'presents', while they are sleeping in their beds. Is christmas a good idea even though it is over commercialised or should it only be celebrated by Christians in a truly religious sense such as other religious festivals are celebrated by other religions, for example Ramadam.

    i would agree with that, but the question remains-should it b a celebration of commercialisation and capitalism or should it theoretically be a solely religious festival. I know strongly religious families (non Christian) who are pressured into giving their kids presents on christmas day as otherwise the kids feel left out.

    Everyone should celebrate Christmas, simply because it is the best holiday!

    It's viewed as the best holiday because you get given christmas presents and is so heavily entrenched in many 'Western' cultures that you get a holiday around that time, consequently, things like trading markets get the day off nearly all over the world.

    BUT should it be given that special status as it is only one religion's celebration (and maybe, not its primary one, {Easter-as christ saves us}). Or is that discrimatory?

    Silence.

    Christmas = get presents. If you don't want anything for free which is actually to your benefit, then you are truly wrong. Christmas is the greatest, everyone should celebrate it, because it is the best holiday.
