Culture, not Jesus, king at Christmas? #tellusatoday
A new poll states that 26% of Americans think Christmas is a cultural, not a religious, holiday. We asked on Twitter what others thought and why. Comments edited for clarity and grammar:
This is a religious holiday. A miracle happened that we cannot explain. Christmas has become highly commercial.
Who cares as long as people enjoy the Christmas season and it brings them joy and peace?
This is a cultural holiday. My agnostic family celebrates it to spend time with family!
I see Christmas as a great cultural holiday that brings love and family together.
It’s both, but it is called CHRISTmas for a reason. But neither is a bad thing. To each his own.
Stores want it to be cultural because they only think about money.
The holiday is sadly better known for presents and Santa than Jesus Christ and Christianity.
Gifts, family, feasts, acts of kindness are all good and fun, but the birth of Christ is still the reason for the season.
