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!

It is the message of hope, peace and joy to all mankind.. a time to love and give... that is Christmas to me..
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.

I can't say I've heard of Christmas till I arrived in NZ 10 years ago. New Years Day was the big celebration and still is for me. Having said that, today, every christmas we generally do the same routine - pull out the christmas tree, hide those presents and fire up the ovens! How do you celebrate...
