As I've gotten older, I've come to realize that the holiday season (pick your holiday), is really what I, and my family, have chosen to make it. We've chosen to make it a time of love, celebration and family. No religion, no god, but much joy.

Wishing you and your family a merry christmas, happy holidays and wonderful new year. However you celebrate!

Christmas is a materialist Joke thats why i don't get offended .If buying whatever the lastest must have game console plasma Tv or 100 dollar shoes has anything thing to do with Jesus birth so be it Im just broke and gain 5 pounds from all the food, I do use the term Seasonal Greetings as not to offend others but I just don't consider it anything but a retailers dream.

I like Christmas the same way I like Halloween.  I don't believe in Jesus anymore than I believe in ghosts, but I like the atmosphere the holiday myth generates.

I also like the pretty lights.

I do like seeing family decorating the tree and all that stuff I just guess when I wrote the other comment I was thinking if you are a believer how could you stand what a event of such great religious significance has become .
