Christian holiday moved to conflict with the time of year when everyone everywhere (and everywhen) celebrates the winter solstice (point of Earth's orbit where, in the northern temperate zones, the sun's zenith slows its southern decent and begins moving north again = another year to live).

2. Hodgepodge of ancient and not-so-ancient rituals, including sacrificing a tree to Mother Nature, celebrating the miracle that got Nicholas his sainthood (reassembling murdered and hacked up child parts in a barrel back into children), and, oh, the birth of Jesus, a jew, and the guy that made 12 of his buddies drink his blood and eat his flesh, before he got executed and came back from the dead. (Can you say "zombie"?)

3. Day that Santa brings new socks and undies. If your bad, you get coal (to keep from freezing) and an orange (for vitamin C to prevent scurvy).
Fucking Christmas. I wanna get drunk.

A replacement word for "Look at the hotshot, doing (something) like it's nobody's business."
The word "business" slowly evolved to be pronounced as "christmas", hence the usage.
See that guy jumping through a ring of fire on a snowboard while drinking a Dew? Christmas.

1. A time when you are forced to spend time and money on people you hate (i.e. your family). People get drunk, fight, then go home and sleep, then wake up with bad hangovers.

2. A time where a perverted fat dude named Santa comes down the chimney and gives little five-year-old Jimmy the dirty magazines he always wanted.

If you don't know what Christmas is then you must live under a freaking rock!

(N.) The birthday of Jesus Christ and Santa Claus. Also the day when you get presents under the christmas tree. Everyone in the world celebrates Christmas, except Jews, Protestants, and me, cause I'm too poor for Christmas.

A holiday on the 25th of December. It is originally meant to celebrate the birth of Christ, but in recent times has also become a secular holiday of sorts, with Santa Claus as its icon. The celebration of Christmas varies between cultures form highly religious to highly secular, but in the West it is usually a combination. Some say, with good reason, that it has become overly commercial. Though its commercialization is parallel to its secularization, it is not an unavoidable result of secularization.
Merry Christmas!

A holiday which is used by self-declared enlightened 13 year olds where they make themselves look smart by hating it.
Oh darn! It's Christmas. I hate Christmas, I'd rather sit and moan in my room complaining about how awful I think my life is.
