So my classmate/friend of mine, he's an amazing person and really well rounded and is sometimes quite kind. A few years ago, he asked me "So... Do you do Christmas? Like Christmas tree or exchange gifts? Not necessarily Santa and all that... Do you know what I mean?" And I answered, yes we do Christmas, it's a huge thing in Filipino culture (he's Filipino too). Then he said casually, "Oh. My family doesn't do Christmas at all cause it's pagan." And I've just been thinking about that in the back of my head for a while... Like, not even gifts or nativity plays?

So I asked my parents and they said "Well, houses are pagan and chairs are pagan. Maybe even our language. But God can bring good things out of bad things."

So I'm just wondering your guys' opinion, about this Christmas thing.

Christmas isn't the real birth date of Jesus, he was probably born in October or November. However, Ellen White had some counsel saying that Christmas should be celebrated by giving gifts to the poor and sharing the ultimate gift. So, I say it's fine to celebrate Christmas, provided you don't forget why you're celebrating it.

I never did Christmas, It seemed dumb(No offense), To celebrate someone's birthday on the wrong date.

And christmas is not about Christ, It is a scam by stores to spend more money.

I am not joking. :ohmy: :ohmy: :ohmy:

I personally don't celebrate Christmas anymore, mostly because of its origins (its basically baptised paganism). But if some one wants to use that time to focus on GIVING to others (not focusing on their personally gift list) then I don't think there's anything wrong with that.

i definitely agree with you, CLUR///
they're tons of things that are pagan, but that doesn't mean that you have to celebrate paganism on Christmas :S
Even though we all know that Christmas is not Jesus' exact birthday, My family still celebrates Jesus on CHristmas and getting together with family and giving gifts :)
I loveeee Christmas, idk about you guys, but it's always been rly special for my family :P

We do celebrate christmas. But we don't do santa claus. we do it to celebrate Jesus coming to the earth. The problem is that people have done what Kwesi said, they took christmas as an opportunity to get money.

But those who wait on the LORD
Shall renew their strength;
They shall mount up on wings like eagles,
They will run and not grow weary,
They will walk and not faint.
Isaiah 40:31 :)

I only partially agree with you. It is on the wrong date, but there's a reason for that, I'm sure.

Christmas is LIFE :P
no jk but Christmas is my fav holiday and in response to that, I know so many people who do not like Christmas, but as EGW says, it's a great way to witness to people. And so many grumpy people I know become cheered up during Christmas! I don't see what's wrong with Christmas at all :silly:

I don't think there's anything wrong with it being pagan. It's not like the Catholic church traditions which are pagan, because it doesn't alter the way we worship. Basically, it doesn't affect how we worship or think about christ, so there's nothing wrong with it.
You just wasted your time reading this meaningless signature...

I wish I my parents would be convinced to celebrate Christmas during summer. We’re all home cause they’re teachers but it’s all about tradition. Tradition is stupid when it gets in the way of other things imo.
I am not Adventist. I mostly stay here because it is the only forum on the internet where I know other people and people know me. It’s kind of like a community and it feels better that way and although I could rather talk to people with the same humor as I have, I have a connection with you ppl
