I know the thread is old, but I voted before looking at the date.
I voted for 1 and 2. First and foremost christmas is about Jesus. I do know that Jesus wasn't born on the 25th December, but that doesn't matter. I also remember and celebrate this all through the year, but christmas is the season were I especially celebrate it. But of course my family and I also like the more secular part of christmas. For me both belong together.
Maybe I am just blind but in my country I don't see a war going on. Here people celebrate together whether they are religious or not and I like it that way.
Whenever there is happiness, hope you’ll be there too. Wherever there are friendly smiles, hope they’ll smile on you. Whenever there is sunshine, hope it shine especially for you. To make each day for you, as bright as it can be. from Ireland
