    It doesn't need to be Christmas my friend. I celebrate with my lord and savior every day for what he has done for me. Thank you Jesus!!

    i tried to stay mindful of Jesus over Christmas. After all Christmas is a celebration of the birth of Jesus.

    Christmas was not when Christ was born, and has become nothing more  a way for people to sale more stuff...My relationship with God goes way past just one day in time...The day itself has little meaning to me.

    no. Christmas is a made up holiday for merchant to get rid of there product and a reason for people to buy a bunch of crap that they never would have buy

      That is what it has become, but the basis for Christ Mass is lumping Christ's glorious name in with ancient pagan idols, rites, and rituals. Only a fool can convince himself that Christ Mass honors Christ by practicing pagan customs...in Jesus' name.

    I woke in the wee hours of Christmas morning and sat alone in the dark. The first thing I did was wish Him a happy birthday and then I thanked Him for all of the blessings he has bestowed on me. So yes, I do believe that I celebrated Christmas with Him.

    I have not celebrated "Christ Mass" for 4 years now. When I was young, we read the Nativity story from the Bible, but it was all about eating and ripping into gifts.

    I don't know any child who doesn't see it the same way. I know of no merchants who don't see it as a way to make some serious cash. As they say, "Christmas makes or breaks" many businesses.

    Even before I really took a hard look at the Christmas tradition, I always felt bad this time of year (as a young adult). It just seemed Jesus was forgotten in all the hustle and bustle of commercialism and consumerism. Things were always so busy and loud...I could hardly hear myself think. It got so bad that I just could not wait for Christmas to end.

    I dare say that anyone who says they can find Jesus in "Christmas" is either delusional, are good at lying to themselves, or can justify just about anything.
