Should Christmas be taken off the Calendar , Jewish and Muslim Groups seem to think so , I'm a Christmas and I think the event has become so commercialized to the Point it no longer has a meaning , most kids and adults don't have a clue why its a holiday and its a one day Holiday not two weeks , it is a day of deep meaning .

Lets not forget us atheists who think all religious holidays are ludicrous.

Personally I think the answer is for governments to legislate say 5 paid vacation days to be taken in support of whatever religion/cause you support that way you can celebrate whatever you like whenever you like.

Why must we always be so alike?
If you donīt want to celebrate Christmas, donīt.
Iīm not religious, but for me Christmas is a tradition and I will retain it that way.

Yes Christmas is a tradition a day to feel good not a time of stress shopping here shopping there etcetera , etcetera , one of my best Christmases was in Vietnam , no presents no Christmas dinner , just a good feeling with good people , there was suppose to be a 24 hour Christmas truce that lasted about 24 minutes .

1st I celebrate it in honor of Jesus's birthday. I also like the joy the children have with Santa Claus and all the presents. Also I do admit I enjoy the Christmas goodies. Although my waistline doesn't.

BTW Tet sorry to hear about the bad X-mass in Nam bummer. Sounds like NVA didn't have the Christmas spirit.

Well JOC, you have eleven months afterwards to get rid of your
waistline

For me, Christmas is about closeness with my family.

One Christmas I spent in Iraq camped in a hell hole of a town. At some point during the night, someone started singing "o come all ye faithful" and soon the whole company was singing. Until some Sergeant Major started hollering about"operation discipline".
