christmas gifts. Should an Atheist exchange gifts on this christian holiday?

I am curious how many people here participate in buying and receiving presents at christmas time? Personally I give my wife and son christmas gifts. Am I selling out to a christian tradition? I feel im bowing down to societal pressure. Is there any way around this?

Its not "merry christmas" its "fairy christmas". a holiday based on the holy birth of a fairy. had to be during the snowy season because thats what its based on. geting snowballed by religion.    i do like getting gifts. that part is fun fun fun. so i see no problem there. as long as we call it by its true name:  Fairy Christmas!
I think of it as a secular holiday and ignore the religous stuff.It's better that way and works for me.
to me it's a family tradition with no religious affiliation...........My family isnt allowed to give my kids jesus stuff such as coloring books or kid bibles.......to me its not religious at all just depencds on the meaning you put behind it
