Is it offensive for an atheist to celebrate Christmas?


It's been stated that Dec. 25th is not actually the day Jesus was born and this date, along with a number of familiar Christmas traditions, were assimilated from other religions when the church rose to power. Similarly, the corporate side of Christmas has popularized imagery that is not associated with Jesus, such as Santa, Rudolf and Frosty. But, despite this, Christmas is still regarded as a christian holiday. So, my question is; if you're an atheist, is it possible to celebrate it as nondenominational? And, if you're christian, does the idea of a non-christian Christmas offend you?
