    Well technically it's Christmas for Christians, X-Mas for atheists/agnostics/the non-religious, and a great day to see The Hobbit for Jews.

    I've always jokingly called Xmas "non-religious Christmas" since it's literally taking the "Christ" out of "Christmas".

    Merry Christmas to you as well TrolleyDave! I had a pretty laid back Christmas this year. Here's hoping yours was just as good if not better.

    Didn't really do anything for Christmas this year, but I don't normally do anything anyway. Merry Christmas to everyone else out there!

    That's one thing I hate, I hate when people say "I don't celebrate Christmas because I'm not religious". You don't have to be religious to celebrate spending a day with your family and giving a few gifts to loved ones and enjoying a big turkey dinner.

    Well if you're religious, you celebrate it for the birth of Christ, stuff like that. If you're nonreligious, you celebrate it for what it represents, which is the spirit of giving, charity, family, stuff like that. Same goes with most Christian holidays.

    Christmas isn't really a religious holiday, even if that was why it was created.
    Now it's more of a social holiday, like the one day off the whole year where you get to relax with the family, with ofcourse hours of preparing for it.
