It's not much of a Mass without Christ, so it sounds to me like whomever is proposing taking 'Christ' out knows so little about Christmas they don't even know what the word 'Christmas' actually means.



 

I'm an atheist and I think Merry Christmas is fine. Christ's birthday isn't even the 25th :p



Then it would just me "Mas" which is Spanish for "More". Which is the perfect way to describe this holiday. We all want "more" presents!

Except in spanish we say Navidad (from the same radical as nativity) and mot gifts are exhanged on the Reyes Magos holiday (jan 6) which celebrates the  "visit of the Magi to the baby Jesus" (had to look an english way to explain it lol)

 

Latin Maerica does it the US way though so... fuck it... your joke works

Are you kidding? The whole point of Christmas is the birth of Christ...the reason we give gifts is because the wise men gave gifts to Christ.

That's like trying to take St. Patrick out of St. Patrick's Day or St. Valentine out of Valentine's Day....what's the fucking point?

Man I'm really tired of non-Christians trying to change Christian traditions in a Christian country. You don't hear about Christians going to Israel or Saudi Arabia and demand Jewish or Muslim traditions be changed...so why in America?

Saying happy holidays is MORE THAN SUFFICIENT...we don't need to now disrespect the hell out of Christmas by taking Christ's name out of it.

No need to take that part out of the name. If people seriously are offended by it, then all I have to say is "wow".

 

I have to agree with you there. Since even athiests realise that Jesus Christ existed and was a noteworthy profit of his day who did a lot of good things. Just because an athiest thinks that a person is not divine doesn't mean they can't celebrate their birthday.



I say happy holidays because its better than saying Happy Gift day(My athiest all in one term for this time of year) and Happy New Year.



Getting an XBOX One for me is like being in a bad relationship but staying together because we have kids. XBone we have 20000+ achievement points, 2+ years of XBL Gold and 20000+ MS points. I think its best we stay together if only for the MS points.

Yes, my name is Chris, so I vote we take out the Christ.  It can be Chrismas.  Always wanted a holiday.

Lately it has been in Spain 50% Papa Noel (Father Christmas/Santa Claus) 50% los reyes magos (The three wise old men) as some people believe it's cruel to give the presents only one day before going back to school. I prefer to keep the tradition, but I understand why some people give the presents the 25th.
