Although I am an atheist, I find Christmas an important part of growing up. It helps with your personal experiences and it reduces stress. It is unfair to exclude a child from such a widely celebrated festival because you do not believe that they should celebrate it. Not celebrating Christmas can have an impact on younger children's lives since other children will think that they are strange and the child may be bullied as a result.
Christmas brings hundreds of billions of dollars into the economy and boosts the stocks markets through from October through December.
Many industries would crash and burn without Christmas- for instance the gaming industry depends very heavily on holiday sales. Turkey sales would be in trouble. Obviously, on the individual level, not 100% necessary. But on a large scale level, the economy would suffer greatly without it.
Alright fine, if you don't think Christmas is necessary, we won't celebrate your birthday, either. I mean, if we don't celebrate God, why should we celebrate a tiny human?
yes but not the way it is portrayed today it should be used to celebrate the birth of Jesus instead of getting what u want
From a religious perspective, economic perspective, and a family-perspective, yes. Christmas supports religion, it boosts the economy, and it may be the one chance that some families can get together.
It's not NECESSARY. Balacafa, it may be important, but the key word here is necessary.
Agree with gabep. Also I love the picture.
Christmas is great and I like it, but it isn't absolutely necessary.
Nope, not necessary at all. Then again, is any holiday really necessary?
It is not in the Bible
It's not necessary, but if people want to celebrate it then all power to them.
