In society at large, it would be difficult to make a valid case, based on evidence, it is not almost entirely a secular holiday.

For many individuals who celebrate Christmas, in practice, it is still an acknowledgment of the birth, life & ministry of the Messiah Yeshua Christ as foretold in scripture.

If Jesus were alive today, he'd probably lock us all inside Wal-Mart and beat us until Christmas is no longer.

Some treat it religiously regardless of the origins but the de facto practice is a season of mass consumption of products people neither need nor have time to enjoy.

To each their own, but for me Christmas is about family and friends. It has no religious meaning to me, and I'm good with just enjoying the good times with good people.

Merry Christmas! 😎

It's seems to be reverting back to its original pagan traditions. Meaning it's Christmas without Christ.

Really, you can create your own personal Christmas any way you want. The stress through intense advertising, Black Friday becoming a new holiday, and extravagant gift-giving kinda sickens me.

Well in all fairness, not really. Christians hijacked winter solstice celebrations many moons ago, and incorporated a bunch of pagan rituals and traditions into Christmas. Also according to the KJV, there's no way Jesus was even born on December 25th.

To me the only thing Christian about Christmas is in name only.

Of course it is a religious holiday. Non-Christians can celebrate it, but it is about the birth of Jesus Christ, who is part of Christianity.

Who cares when Jesus was born, we can celebrate it any time we want. That's irrelevant. And yes, it was adopted from other cultures, but in modern day it is a celebration of the birth of Jesus Christ. That is a fact. If you want to go back thousands of years and celebrate whatever pagan god it was a celebration of before, then be my guest, but it is a celebration of the birth of the lord Jesus.
