    Of Course! Christmas (for me) is about getting together with my Family I love and spending quality time together...

    This is probably because we all live so far away from one another and Christmas each year is the one time we all make an effort to get together so, its an easy answer! smile My kids on the other hand would disagree! haha

    I have never believed in god and have therefore seen christmas as a waste of time and money. I would never suggest that those of us that do believe should not enjoy christmas though. But please don't spend, spend, spend as so many of us do.

    I wish we didn't exchange gifts.  Then we could just focus on the real meaning.

    Most definitely! It is not at all about the gifts. Probably Christmas would be better (certainly less stressful) without having to get gifts for people.

    It certainly has become very commercialized which distracts from it's true significance.

    What's important about this celebration is the exchange of love and caring.  If it genuinely inspires giving a gift, then, that's certainly OK, especially if it's something made just for the person with the giver's two hands.  If that's not possible, then it should be something that really fits the recipient.  Price should not matter, only value to the person - and it should be the giver's own idea, not based on a list of the person's 'wants'.

    If no gifts are exchanged, that's certainly OK, too, so long as the celebration is about the love and joy of being together.

    Of course!  Christmas is not about gifts for me. It is a time to celebrate my Saviour's birth!  He came to earth, was born in a manger, and lived a perfect life just so He could die for our sins!  What a sacrifice!
