Christmas doesn't exist, it is a man-made 'holiday'. As for me, I don't believe in 'Christmas' as it is presented, celebrated and commercialized publicly. Don't take me wrong, please I am a firm believer.

Very good point 'christianized' - 25th December a pagan orgy celebration, nothing of "holy" connection to the biblical teaching. As 'celebrated' popularly in the world today, mostly its all but "Christ'' in the focus, take faith as personal personal.
Not true based on Matt 2:11 where "Wise men bought "gifts" in honor of Christ's Birth!
Col 2:16 "Let no man JUDGE you of an "holy" day...!"
You can either believe "pagan" history or Scripture ("Wise men")!
and you can celebrate christmas everyday Norine Williams
I will; "or the rocks will cry out" (Lk19:40)!
Col2:16 "Let no man JUDGE u in respect of 'an holy day'..."
Matt 5:20 "Unless *your* righteousness EXCEED the righteousness of the scribes & Pharisees, u will in no case enter into kingdom of heaven"
Finally, Norine Williams we are in agreement. HalleluYAh.
Factious or we?
Col2:16 "Let no man JUDGE you in respect of "an holy" day..."
IF "in agreement" with WORD; AMEN!
Matt 2:11 says "Wise men bought gifts in "honor" of HIS birth" (Not "wise?") so why can't we "honor?" It's in Bible!
Col2:16 says "Let no man JUDGE u of an holyday...[as] Sabbath days" which giving "honor" to Christ is! Date doesn't matter huh?
I respect you guys opinion , here.
First Jesus birthday was never recorded or even observed himself. , next Jesus season of birth was when the animals were out in the field warm month.
John the. Baptist was kllled and behead at a birthday request
Thank you Bill. It is an honor my friend to have you as the first commenter , sacrificing your valuable time with- exemption. Your participation proves your writer's aspiration to lead the readers toward the source of truthfulness.
So true Dana Tate, the Spirit of the occasion is precisely the main point as you have stated. We do celebrate God's willingness to "Being with us"- Emmanuel- a year round, everyday, by a choice eternally. Tank you for commenting. Blessed everyday.
Col 3:16 "And WHATSOEVER you do in word or deed, do ALL in the name of the Lord Jesus, giving thanks to God and the Father by him."
Interesting N; did Colossians celebrated Christmas unto the Lord too?!
Apparently; when they were told to let everyone "respect another's "holy day" w/o JUDGMENT"(Col2:16)! JUDGE w/WORD or "YOU* judge! U worry about wrong thgs(fleshly)! GOD wants PRAISE-EVERYDAY & why we were created(Lk19:40)!
