    Christ wasnt even born on the 25th for december

    If anything the 25th of december is more of a pagan festival. Think before you speak.

    I've got no idea, but i just happened to of read 'the xmas files' leant off my philosophy teacher

    One problem it says is 'Should non christians celeberate christmas' and it gives some convincing arguments of why they should

    i think that people take christmas as`a period of time in which you take the company of frends n family, being greatful for what we have, regardless of faith. for those of us who are christians, this is also true, as well as celebrating the birth of Christ.

    Well

    A lot of non-Christian people I know do. We call it "Winterfest" within my group of friends because most of us don't celebrate proper Christmas anyway, we celebrate the traditional festival around December that reaches a climax on the 25th with traditional exchange of gifts and greetings.
