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?

    Good point. Just recently, the Pope said that Roman Catholic traditions are just as valuable as Biblical doctrine. Herein lies the problem: too many Christians are followers instead of seekers of truth. That, and they do not search the Scriptures.

    quildon, I looked up the winter solstice which is December 21 or 22. So if the winter solstice is what non-Christians celebrate, why not do it on December 21 or December 22.

    As a child, and that was many years ago for me, everyone had to celebrate Christmas at the schools. We did not have a choice. Today, I have this love for Christmas trees. I call it Yule now. I would never honor or celebrate a holiday for christians.

    thank you Michael! You're right. They call it Christmas but don't celebrate Christ.

    Hi Renee! I've been following Santa Monica. Why can't they just let both groups have a spot ... no harm no foul.

    I believe that the Lord should be celebrated every day. I don't have enough room to cite OT references to Jewish feasts and celebrations. Those were the celebrations Paul spoke of to the Jews.
