There will be those less educated and tolerant Christians who believe that as Agnostic Atheist I would not celebrate Christmas but if they had been observing the word around them especially here in the United Kingdom would of notices at lot of people who now celebrate Christmas are not Christian as such any more.
It strikes me that Christmas has been hijacked by everyone here in the United Kingdom and become more than a Christian only festival though the essence of the festival has not gone but changed especially my end. It has become a festival when families and friends come together to eat and drink at the darkest time of the year when they celebrate families and friends. It has become an dam good excuse for families and friends to enjoy themselves and reconnect.
This all in addition to the Christian side of Christmas which is still important to Christians but now most definitely only another facet of Christmas but not the whole any more. This is regardless of the less educated and tolerant Christians who frankly failed to move on with the times especially here in the United Kingdom.
My personal view this more inclusive and family orientated rather than purely religious festival it has become is more relevant and incisive to our modern world plus it makes it whole thing less stuffy but more fun festival for all.
So ahead a Merry Christmas awaits me and my partner.
