Is it wrong for Christians to celebrate Christmas?

    Some Christians tend to view Christmas as a pagan holiday because of the trees, Santa Claus, etc.  Also, it is highly unlikely that Jesus was born on a date other than December 25.  Is there anything wrong with Christians celebrating Christmas?

      Cprice75 I thought you would know better.
      You're not supposed to ask the same question in the Q & A section as well as here that too within seconds of each other.

        It is great we have free choice to either celebrate  or not celebrate.

      It seems to me that it depends on what we celebrate. Are we truly thankful for the gift of Christ taking on flesh to redeem a lost and dark world? Is Christmas used as another opportunity to increase our awareness of Him and what He has done for us?
      You will have to decide for yourself whether or not to celebrate, but in my opinion, every one of us has the choice to focus our mind and heart, during any event, on Him.
      I look forward to hearing what others have to say about this!
