Christmas – a secular holiday

December 24th, 2010 by Ken

All around the world, people are celebrating Christmas, and not just in Christian countries.

In places like India, China, Japan and all across Africa, Christmas has become the new world holiday.

Christmas icons, like Santa Claus, Frosty the Snowman, Elves, Rudolph and even Grandma, are now symbols of a secular Christmas.

Many non-Christians in the United States have grasped on to the holiday, as a way to enjoy the secular aspects.  A time of family, of celebration of life, of giving gifts, of showing love,  a time for peace on earth, good will towards men.

At the same time, the religious aspect of Christmas still dominates.   The birth of the savior, the lord.  The birth of Jesus Christ in a manger in Bethlehem more than 2000 years ago.

And, while Christians still hold the high ground on this important holiday, the non-believers can also enjoy the other side of Christmas – – the secular side.

Both can exist, side by side.

Whatever your side, Merry Christmas.
