Yes. I don't see why Atheists shouldn't celebrate Christmas. There is proof that Jesus really existed - although most likely not as the son of God, just as a really cool guy who wanted peace. I respect Jesus' views, and although I am not a Christian, I strongly agree with most of the morals in the Bible. A lot of it makes sense. Anyway, Christmas is really meer of a cultural than religious celebration now - it has now become a traditional western holiday.

I personally think that everybody should celebrate Christmas - it is the holiday that endorses peace and goodwill after all. Isn't that everyone's concern?

sorry but i really dont understand how u can say he was a good guy! but he lied to us and wrote a whole book for us telling us lies and meer lies and just happened to telepathically tell other followers of his to write in this book too. sorry but if he was a "good guy" he wouldn't do that >.>

I'm an Atheist and I enjoy Christmas. I like spending time with my family and friends, enjoying each other's company, and doing gift exchanges.
Plus Christmas is celebrated in different ways, for different reasons all around the world.

Exactly. X-mas is celebrated in different ways. But some don't realize that.

I have no idea why atheists celebrate Christmas, but loads of them do. Even though Christmas was originally supposed to be Jesus' birthday.

I'm an atheist and my family does, but mostly out of tradition. My parents don't believe in God, but they were both raised in strongly Christian families, so they've just continued the tradition with my little sister and I. We just don't go to Church of do the religious aspect of anything. There is still emphasis on the giving and caring part of it. Just because we're atheists doesn't mean we're bad people. Christmas is as important to culture as it is to religion. There's nothing weird about it. (:

I'm and atheist, and yes, some do. Most do, actually. I'd dag all of them do but I don't want to make assumptions; everyone I know does, however.

I realize it's kind of offensive to celebrate when u don't even believe in Jesus, but I enjoy it. So, it's not a disrespect thing.

It's not offensive. i'm Christian and I don't find it offensive. It's like a Non-jew celebrating with a Jewish family for a Bar Mitzvah

Some do and some don't.

Maybe because they view it as spending quality time with their family? And having the fringe benefits of getting presents?

Yes. And I hate it when people say it's stupid of disrespectful, of that we're only doing it for presents. My family celebrates it because of tradition and time with our family.
