"Christmas??? Who says it has to be religious? In my opinion, its a few days off of school/work that you should enjoy. Just give them presents and leave it at that. If you like, consider this: it's a holiday that just happens to be known as…"

"Christmas was created by stealing the winter solstice holidays from the Pagans. Commercialism has since stolen Christmas from the Christians. It is now no more Christian a holiday than the 4th of July. So you can still celebrate it without guilt.…"
