      I come from a Muslim family so we never celebrated Christmas, despite me not being a part of the religion. I don’t see why people get so worked up over being asked if they celebrate Christmas or not. It’s a lovely time to be around the family and use it as that sort of holiday. “We don’t celebrate it.” I would argue it’s BASED off Christianity at all, it’s the Winter Solstice, it’s been celebrated since before Christianity was about. It was called “Sol Invicti” a holiday to honour the Sun God ‘Sol’ (but to also honour the Emperors themselves since they were considered the descendants of Apollo) and it was based on the 24th and 25th of Dec. Since then, the festivities for the Egyptian Earth-mother Isis were held on the 25th of Dec, Jan 6th, and March the 5th.  At first, historically, the Christians thought Jesus was born and ressurected on the same day, March the 25th, then the later Christians were celebrating it on Jan the 6th, and then even later in roughly around the fourth century, they celebrated it on the 25th (to defy the Emperor) So, as you can see, Christmas isn’t a Christian holiday, and has lost its meaning to begin with for over two thousand years, so there is no reason not to celebrate it as just a national holiday!
