    Some people i spoke to said  they do for the remembrance of christ birth, some say it is just a day of festivity. What about you what do you say?

    I think it is just a nice time where everyone can feel happy and contented and be with their families and get on. There is nothing like a good Christmas dinner as well!

    For me it is a special day celebrated by getting together and spending time with family - and of course the kids are only interested in the presents.

    We never were religious, but our parents celebrated it, so we had the habit of decorations and gifts. 

    We stopped the gifts in 2004 and have been cutting back on decorating ever since. I don't know that we'll ever stop entirely, but we are getting close.  It's a silly holiday.
