The Jews could certainly adopt Christmas if they want...the Catholics certainly did. Pagan holidays lend themselves well to Ecumenical seasonal celebrations.

As a Muslim, I was glad to get away from my mother's menorah and my dad's tree. Much less work putting up decorations, except for Eid which my wife LOVES to decorate for!

Plot Twist: Christians weren't supposed to have "christmas" trees either, but did the same thing centuries ago, because they envied the pagans.

O Tannenbaum, o Tannenbaum, Wie treu sind deine Blätter!

Atheists aren't supposed to have them either but they envied the theists.

I'm a neo-pagan with a wide variety of beliefs, but I "celebrate Christmas". So do most of my Jewish friends.

I like Santa, I like Home Along and Die Hard, I like the Christ birth tale, I like the concept of observing the solstice, I like to reflect on the year gone by and spend time with family...I'm a fan of it all!

I do try to wish people a hearty 'Have a Good Holiday' if I'm out and about around the big day but I often will just say Merry Christmas as well. I mean it in an entirely non-denominational way and it's usually taken as such.

Most of the fun stuff about Christmas, like the tree and lights (and ol' St Nick), are of pagan origin anyway. I don't mind that the Christians co-opted them.

bingo. from merchants to music and everything else, all walks of people have cash registers cha-chinging. for the longest time, for many companies, it is the season which puts them over the top.

Neighbors in the next block have a tree, the couple is Jewish  and raises their kids that way.  Two doors down the he is Catholic and she is Jewish, they have a tree and a menorah, no tree for my next door neighbors, bought the girls some gelt because my son was a jackass in the past and are theirs once without asking.

Secular Christmas is the answer.  Who could possibly disagree with Peace on Earth and goodwill towards Men?

Neopagan here, too, but as I am not now, nor have I ever been a Christian, I don't celebrate it. But then, *all* these holidays are built around celebrating the Winter Solstice, which I celebrate, without the crap the newer religions larded onto it.

Just so happens that Lemmy's birthday is on December 24th, so I put out the traditional pile of bottles of Jack Daniel's whenever I feel like it.

Lemmy Saves!
