Christmas should be banned because it's the government endorsing a Christian holiday. The same should go towards Easter.

Yes because banning Christmas wouldn't cause any outrage or anything.... How is the govt endorsing a Christian holiday?

It's a Federal holiday. Plus they also put up Christian decorations and prayers at the White House.

Why don't you just say you want the government to have nothing to do with the holidays instead of saying you want them straight out banned?

What makes you think there's something wrong with the government endorsing a holiday? Or praying at the White House? As long as Congress doesn't make laws respecting an establishment of religion, we're Okey Dokey. They have not established a national religion. And they also celebrate other religious holidays.

There's no problem here.

And Christmas is also a secular holiday.

OK, The United States, same as us Canada was founded and still governed by christiens. Well, most of them anyway. Live and let live budy. I for one prefer having christmas...I do say "Bah Humbug with a smile" but that's because of the commercialism and capitalism that ensues. But think of the kids. the smile it puts on their little faces. If you don't celibrate Christmas that's fine too. Just don't come and crash our party.

OUUUUCH!!! I think the troll bit me...sheesh!!!

I think there shouldn't be any money spent on any holiday, nor for any holiday. Everything should be community based with these things, and bring the community together! Screw money!

I pretty much agree with everyone else. While I think Christmas is extremely overcommercialized, I don't think it should be banned all together. Some of my best memories from my childhood are from Christmas and being with family I don't get to see on a regular basis. If you don't like it, don't celebrate it. Why should the rest of us who enjoy it have to suffer because you're a debbie downer? That's a no-go there bud.

If you don't like Christmas or any other holiday that you get paid for not working, then when you go to work go up to your boss and tell him you don't want any holiday pay and that you want to work on those holidays. You could even tell him that if he doesn't let you work on all holidays that you will quit. And make sure you tell him that he has to work on all holidays too. Merry Christmas.

Christmas is a pagan holiday, stolen by the Christians who believed jesus was born on the roman calenders winter solstice.

Christmas (unlike many other "holidays") was not actually created by Hallmark...

Don't know... all I can ever do when someone mentions or I hear of that song is picture the scene in A Christmas Story where the family is sitting in the Chinese restaurant for Christmas dinner... Lol

Next to National Lampoons Christmas vacation that starred all of my ex-in laws, that is my favorite Christmas movie.

The scene where the kid sticks his tongue on the metal pole is just priceless...
