@50 Xmas isn't a purely Christian holiday, it is actually a modified pagan holiday just look at the clues eg xmas trees, holly and ivy in the house etc. My point is even if 2 was an atheist they might still like the day of xmas just not the over play of music.

@50 i forgot to add that not everyone is off at xmas whether you celebrate it or not. I work in a hotel and we are open all year, one of us has to be there on xmas day.

Ah man, I work in retail as well and let me tell you...listening to Christmas songs for 8 hours a day, 5 days a week definitely does not put you in the holiday spirit. If anything, it can turn you into a raging alcoholic with the intention of committing vehicular homicide.

55 and 56, I believe I said "some people who work". And, it is basically christans. Since "God" was born on the 25th. But I do agree, not the ENTIRE holiday isn't taken as a holiday under the christen belief.

Euphemism, really if you're gonna go all christian on us, it was Jesus and not God who was supposedly born on the 25th December. That said he was actually born in the summer, but when the Romans finally decided to embrace Christianity they decided to move it to the 25th December as there were already pagan festivals then so they thought it would make for an easier transition. As for the guy who said to look at Christmas trees and holly being indoors as evidence; they are actually pretty modern conventions.

62- if I was an "Christian", I would've known that. But you just proved that I'm not. So thanks. And, I was trying to keep a open mind. As speaking out my thoughts in few unique ways.

Yule logs are from a non-Christian holiday that was absorbed by Christmas. They are not all that new. (This is in regards to the holly and trees discussion; it is basically a modification to the original specs.) @ Euphemism: Many Christians do not know much about Christmas so that doesn't prove any point at all for you. i like a lot of Christmas music if I am in the mood but working retail will kill that spirit quick. I didn't want to celebrate at all when I worked retail. Now I have some Christmas songs that shuffle amongst my other music on my ipod. It's just enough spirit and never any dogs barking Jingle Bells.

actually Christmas trees are old people used to bring them inside during winter because all of the plants would die and it was a symbol of life. they just didn't decorate them.

@90 I absolutely loathe the Jingle Dogs song, it was one of the reasons our employees were able to convince management to change the radio station. Working retail becomes utter hell when chipmunks sing songs and dogs bark jingles over and over every 20 minutes. I challenge someone to remain cheery (and sane) for one shift.

Actually christmas is a christian holiday. Notice the "christ" in it. Nobody knows the official day Jesus was born, but it was sometime in december and we celebrate it the 25th.

You sound like a scrooge get over it! Christmas music is relaxing maybe you should try listening to it or you could pull that big stick out of your butt either way.

There is. I work at Walmart and they have a CD called "We Wish You a Metal Xmas and a Headbanging New Year." It's got all kinds of people such as Ronnie James Dio, Alice Cooper, Tony Iommi, etc.
