ashley, get it right dear, u r quoting from the communion script when Jesus said that..nothing to do with His birth. as it is, u r still celebrating the devils birthday. Noone knows when Christ was born..again, xmas is not His birthday. by celebrating it, u r supporting Tammus the son of Semaranus who never believed in Christ.And yes, I do love Christ and only celebrate what He commanded us to remember..the SABBATH..we only follow the Bible and Bible alone dear...

Again, christmas is the SADDEST DAY IN THE WORLD'S HISTORY..many wives beaten up, many killed in motor accidents due to drink driving, many children abused and left home alone at night while mom n dad r drinking at the pub..many young ones stoned with drugs n drinks, etc etc etc..need I go on? Christmas is the worse day of all...it should not be called Christmans using our dear Christ's name..it should be called the devil's day.

At my house we exchange gifs frequently so we don't necessarily have to wait for Christmas but I do like that time of year. The decorations, family gatherings, parties and so forth. I don't believe Jesus was born on that day so I don't get caught up too much in the commercialism but Yes--we do participate. I also celebrate Easter and other holidays.

Somehow in my heart, I never was thrilled by Christmas. It's just another day. I don't condone it though. It's said that we do things in rememberance of him and this holiday is sure to make a few Christians think about him. these are for the secular people as well as the new Christians. the more a person matures in Christ, the better the person understands and puts away childish things and continue to deepen the love relationship God so often seeks. How do you deepen your relationship with a good friend?

people refuse to honor and show respect for the one person they profess to love. christmas is a day you assemble as a family and read about the birth of Jesus Christ. remember what He taught us. not through material ways, but spiritual uplifting. Look at our lives. without the resurrection of Jesus Jana, you would die and rot in the grave forever. Jesus was raised enabling you and everyone else to live eternally. Jesus said: this do in remembrance of me. what is wrong with taking two days to honor him.

2- when parents have children, they celebrate their birth. when a husband and wife marry, they celebrate their anniversary. the one person we owe our salvation to is now commercialized. Instead of spiritually uplifing our souls that day, merchants saw it as a way to make billions. In my home, we put a gift under the tree for Jesus. In the box, we put something we will work on that year to perfect ourselves. like no lying that year, no swearing, no alcohol, no drugs. those are gifts worthy of God.

No we will never celebrate christmas for IT IS NOT CHRIST'S BIRTHDAY but of Tammus..by us celebrating it, we are uplifting Tammus and not Christ. This is a pagan tradition quietly slipped into christianity about 2nd century by the heathens. Tammus the son of Semaranus was born on 25dec..if u r a genuine christian, u celebrate 7th day Sabbth only which God commanded..REMEMBER THE SABBATH TO KEEP HOLY.He never asked us to celebrate His ressurection..

Well David, I cannot imagine what Christmas was like growing up in your house, but in my house we celebrate the birth of Christ. We understand that it was not necessarily Christ's exact birthday, but since in reality, He always was, it will do. For us this makes Him part of our family just as we are part of His. In addition to Christ's birthday, we also celebrate His Resurrection, and Pentecost, and the feasts of the Ascension and of Christ the King. The Church celebrates Christ every day with Mass.
---lorra8574 on 5/19/07


Yes, I will be celebrating Christmas this year. My real reason for doing so is that I wish to commemorate the events of Christ's birth and God's love for us. I share that love with my friends and family.

Just so I can prepare for the next holiday, which is the next debated one after Christmas? New Years? Valintines day? St. Patricts day? Easter? May day? Memorial day? Independance day? Labor day? I think I need to prepair for the debate because I sure would hate to come in short. Celebrations are fun and inspiring, why do we have holidays not to get out of work but to celebrate life, and life with christ.

Christ was not born on December 25th. Christmas is pagan and no Christians should be celebrating a pagan tradition. Nowhere in the Bible does it command us to celebrate his birthday. If you want to celebrate his birthday then do it on the right day which was probably in September or October. I doubt the shepards would have been out all night during winter. Come on people figure it out.
---David on 12/7/06


We celebrate Christmas every year because it is Jesus birthday. We have special music, decorations, and exchange gifts. We go to a performance of Handel's Messiah each year and several church programs and dinners. TV will have lots of specials..on the birth of Jesus, the wisemen, and God's
plan of salvation beginning with His birth.
---Virginia on 12/5/06


Thanks for your comment here moderator..and amen! I'd love to hear your reason(s)!
---dianne on 12/5/06


YOu know the fact that the secular society celebrates christmas should really give you encouragement to evangilize and tell them the reason for the season. If they don't like it then maybe non christians should stop celebrating it not christians. But instead we have christians trying to say its pagan and give it up instead of keeping what is theirs.

Rebecca: I once went to a church that had a float in a 4th of July parade. We made it Noah's Ark, and had kids dressed as animals aboard, along with Noah and his wife. We handed out flyers for our DVBS program to all the kids along the parade route. It won an prize.
---Madison1101 on 12/4/06


We will be celebrating. It is a time our society sets aside to honor the birth of Jesus and we will be part of that. I just don't want to see it become strictly a secular time, an "x-mas". I live out in the country and tend to play "Jesus songs" a little louder than other's Jingle Bells... Forgive my lack of tact.

The congergation at my church got together to make a float for this year's Christmas parade. We were the only ones that had a float that really represented all about Christ and his birth. there were several churches there that had a float, but they had Santa Claus and things of that nature. We really got people talking.

I went to a Christmas chorale program last night. It was as dead as a doornail. It was held in a church, the chorale came from all different churches. Technically, it sounded great, but there was no life. One song, "The Last Words of David" (2 Sam 23:3,4) had God's touch on it. "Every Night When the Sun Goes In" had a little life. Maybe it was the "Sleigh Bells", "Kum Ba Yah", and "White Christmas" thrown in that deflated it.

Our family celebrates the birth of Jesus Christ. What other way and reason is there to celebrate Christmas? Our Families get together, and we have a wonderful time. My church is having a dinner, it is a great way to fellowship outside of the church building.
---Rebecca_D on 12/4/06

I go to a Christmas Eve service and they have communion. Then i go to my family's house on Christmas day. We exchange presents and since my sister and her family isn't born again, they let me lead them in prayer, and songs. We have a blessed time because I don't get together with my family that often due to my hectic life and work schedule. We acknowledge Jesus is the reason for the season.
---Donna9759 on 12/4/06


Absolutely not. We call it tho a family day and not Christ's birthday. What an insult it is to say He was born on this day. Our family come together and give to each other to express our appreciation of each other thru the year. We thank God for giving us this opportunity to come together as one and that He/Christ is in the centre of our unit.
---lily on 12/4/06


Yes, We celebrate Christ's birthday every Christmas; there is no other reason for Christmas but Christ. Happy 2,012th Birthday Jesus!
---Eloy on 12/3/06


Yes but I don't really have a choice. It is a family thing to do Christmas for gifts alone. Most of my family aren't Christians even though they will all tell you they are.
We won't be singing songs about Christ or celebrating His birthday. Maybe I'll have the boldness to bring it up and start singing some songs about Jesus. =(

Our family does. We find it's an open door to get to talking about Jesus and His gift to the world. We love celebrations and this is the best one of the year.
