I thought most holidays were originally pagan in origin

Yes, I mean, Santa Claus is not exactly a Christian thing. And I mean the popular figure of him. I have many friends that are non-believer and they still celebrate it and it's a family thing too. It happens the same with Easter, but here is the Bunny instead. *shrugs*

The way I see it, Christmas has become something far different from it's original meaning. It's become a time of exchanging gifts, and simply that to many, I don't see why people that aren't religious can't still participate in that part of 'christmas'/the holidays.
And when American Media advertises the holidays for nearly two months prior to most holiday dates, it seems less of a religious thing and more of just an economy booster. >.>

Unless the non-religious have something against the economy, I don't see the problem.

Of course. I'm a troll (I mean atheist) and I celebrate it. Besides, they're both pagan holidays. And the fact that Christians celebrate pagan holidays kind of sums it up. Besides, whos to say we can or cannot celebrate a holiday?
Merry Christmas to you all.

Christmas/Easter/etc ... are really just social things, so I think it's pretty much ok.

Personally, I dont celebrate Christmas because of religion, I celebrate for the purpose of giving and seeing family.

..and eating a huge feast of delicious food!

Christmas i just a name, this celebration was before jesus, christians just took celebrations and put theyr own rools, Chrustmas night is the longest and day the shortest, so it can be celebrated by anyone
