The only day I am a christian.
I never go to church but I sure as heck celabrate christmas.
December 25, the day Jesus Christ's birth is celebrated. It is most likely not Christ's actual date of birth, but was probably chosen to supplant a pagan Roman holiday of the same date when the Roman Empire under Constantine converted to Christianity. This definition is way too wordy for this site.
Man, this Christmas shindig beats out Sacrificing Some More Goats To Jupiter Day hands down!
A boost in the economy...at the very least

Once a definition for a sacred holiday celebrating the birth of baby Jesus. Now a modern slang term for capitalists raping your wallet while you waste all of your money on people you hate.
Once again Christmas has left my wallet and desire for sex with a woman in an elf suit empty.
A debased Christian festive day, an over-commercialized time of quiet desperation, but a time of supposed good-will to our fellow man. 'Cause being kind once a year is better than never at all.
"Can I give money to the Sally-Ann,Mum" "Yes, dear, after all it's Christmas." "Let's give to the Foodbank, after all, it's Christmas" "Should we invite poor lonely Kevin?" "Sure, it's only once a year."

What does all this secular, capitalist crap have to do with the birth of a religous leader in Bethlehem?
Christmas is just another one of those religous holidays who's spiritual meaning and icons have been replaced by the toy companies and retailers. It shows you the extreme sinfull nature of the human heart, to replace anything that has to do with God and spiritual matters.
It's the best time of the year...
I don't know if there will be snow, but have a cup of cheer!
