Should non-Christians celebrate Christmas and Easter?

    Personally, I think that these holidays, like all holidays, have taken on a life of their own. So the "secular" versions of the holidays are just as legitimate to celebrate. After all, how often to people ponder the historical roots and deeper meanings of our holidays?

      Celebrate or observe, I think most people observe these holidays whether they celebrate their meaning or not.  I have several friends and family who do this.  They don't really go to church or even acknowledge them as christian holidays yet they still observe them and its ok. If that's what they want to do.

    Yes, but they should celebrate for the right reasons. They should learn what Christmas and Easter is all about.

      Most people know what xmas is all about.

      It is a pagan practice taken over by christians and an opportunity to spend your credit card balance on the kids. smile

        It's ironic that so few Christians know the origins of their holy days.

        You did a good job of summarizing - more or less - in one sentence a hub that I just wrote on the subject.
