Do you buy a decorate a Christmas Tree even if you are not a Christian?
I see eatery outlets and friends who are not Christians, decorate fake Christmas tree just for the joy. I admire them. Do you do the same?
The eatery outlets will have Christians - and others who celebrate it, not only Christians do - as customers. So they most likely put the tree up for the customers.
Also, in the US it probably began as a tradition for this day many years ago. Since then there have been changes in religions and our people who live here.
i see, so maybe the owners are christians or majority of the customers are christians. Do you decorate the real or fake tree?
I have a 24" fake tree since I live alone and maybe the only guests I would have are my brother and his girlfriend. Besides, the decorations are still packed somewhere from the last move.
So you didn't decorate the tree this year? I don't have one
Not this year. The tree is in the closet and I could have made some simple decorations for it but Christmas sneaked up on me this year since I have been so busy.
yeah, too busy with your work eh? I prefer to watch those tall Xmas trees well decorated at shopping malls
I do not go to malls anymore, I only go to Publix and WalMart. Maybe Home Depot.
The Christmas tree is not a religious symbol at all. I am quasi Christian and my husband is Roman Catholic and we do not put up a tree. The main reasons for that is one..it is stored in the crawlspace and neigther of us loke t go under there. The other one is we have cats...enuf said about that one! We have a new kitty that we just adopted--actually left here and we just do not like the mess of getting everthing out and then putting it away.
I see that it is a big chore to put up and back while the cat is around too
Try 6 cats. That is how many that I have and 5 live in the house most of the time.
gosh 6 cats will cause chaos in the house. No wonder you don't put up the Xmas tree
Today, most people in Britain don’t celebrate Christmas for its religion but because it’s a festive tradition reinforced by also being a public holiday.
A large percentage of the British population is not religious (25.7%), compared to America where it’s only 15%. And more striking, only 59% of Britain’s are Christians, compared to 73% in America (2011 and 2012 surveys).
Yet most Britain’s celebrate Christmas, including buying and decorating Christmas trees, just as much as anyone else.
Years ago we bought a real Christmas tree rooted in a pot, which we keep in the garden and each Christmas bring into our conservatory for decorating; it’s now grown to about 5ft tall, and still growing slowly, its growth restricted by being potted.
I have a "holiday" tree. The idea of decorating trees for the winter solstice or Yule (particularly pine trees) dates back to Pagan times. In fact, it didn't even become a tradition to have a decorated tree indoors in the United States until the late 1800's.

Why do non-Christians celebrate Christmas?Christmas is a celebration of the birthday of Christ. Why do non-Christians celebrate Christmas? Is this the reason people say the US government was founded based on Christian principles?

Is it wrong for Christians to celebrate Christmas?Some Christians argue against the celebration of Christmas because Jesus probably wasn't born on December 25 and many of the traditions are pagan.

My family and I absolutely adore Christmas, so we always start putting up our Christmas decor on the first week of November. Everytime I tell someone when we decorate they think we are CRAZY! I'm sure there is someone else who does it too!
