    As for me, I do celebrate the birth of my Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. Sure, that might not be his birthday. So? I don't find birthdays themselves to be meaningful anyway. I don't find New Year's or birthdays or any particular day to be meaningful in and of themselves; they are just reminders of important events. I can't get excited about particular days, but I can get excited about what those days represent.

    And yes, it is nice to spend time with family and friends ... depending on the family and friends. This is not exclusive to Christmas, though.

    I won't defend the commercialism of Christmas. I don't even really believe much in gift-giving to celebrate Christmas. What I do believe in is celebrating the birthday of a good friend of mine.

    I also have always thought that, while your derision of my beliefs certainly isn't appreciated, that non-Christians have no logical reason to celebrate Christmas. So I basically agree with you on everything except for the validity of God and Christ themselves. :-)

    OTOH ... you need to lighten up. Ignore what you don't care for.
    • Amen. I was kind of shocked to see such a journal entry, but everyone has the right to post whatever they want.
