I kinda like Christmas. Even though I'm not a Christian, I recognize the importance and value of the hopes, and festivities, and lessons the holiday inherited from its pagan predecessors.

I mean, hey, Christmas is most likely not even the correct date for Christ's birth. He was probably born in the spring sometime. So expanding the definition of the holiday a bit seems pretty reasonable.

For an excellent analysis of this dichotomy, please see the animated short, "The Spirit of Christmas." Like you haven't already.
