Christmas: Imposing Christian Values?

The meaning of todays' Christmas has been so dilluted that most people out there have lost the true meaning of Christmas. And yet, there are people out there that thinks Christmas is solely a Christian Event, and thus should not be imposed on others. Thus, a proposal to change the name of the festivity from 'Christmas' to 'Holiday Season'. (Re: www.kennysia.com)

Well, people throughout the world do know that Christmas is a time to remember Christ's birth and it's a festival Christians from all over the world celebrate. So what's the problem?

Because it's been celebrated worldwide, it is deemed to be an imposing event? That people throughout the world are 'forced' into celebrating Christmas and this practise will affect the faiths of other people practising other religions?

I mean, "C'mon!"

Even pronouncing the word 'Christmas' is seen as imposing the Christian Faith on those who do not practise the faith?

What is this world coming to?

So by this we are implying that we would like to see more and more of religious names being changed to 'politically correct' terms so that they will not impose anything on non-believers? If we do change Christmas to 'Holiday Season', then 20 years down the line, no one will remember what Christmas was! The same will go for any other name of any other festivity! Take away the name, and the festival loses its soul. Then why would we still want to celebrate something that brings no meaning?

What will 'Holiday Season' mean without 'CHRISTmas'? Isn't it hereditary that we celebrate the Birth of Christ without mentioning the Name of Christ? Then maybe we should celebrate Independance Day without Independance!

Christmas should be kept that way. No Holiday Season, or any politically correct terms.

It is a Christian day of celebration/reflection. And it's been turned into a commercial/sales event.

I appreciate the coming together of all races and beliefs for to celebrate each other's holidays but
it's pathetic when I see children of other faiths begging their parents for christmas presents or christmas trees because they've succombed to the massive media brainwashing.

You Christians should claim back Christmas from the annual sales event it's been turned into.
