I grew up in christian schools and in a christian family, so Christmas is primarily nostalgic tradition, and cultural celebration. Its so common here in America, and ubiquitous, that its the biggest theme to celebrate the winter season. (And I love seasonal celebrations) Plus, I like presents and sales lol I like to volunteer in general and I work in non-profit sector, so helping the poor is pretty much what I do in general, but I do a few extra things during the winter/fall (serving Thanksgiving dinner to homeless people, for example, or doing drives)
BUT I am a huge atheist. I'm actually a bit hostile toward religion lol But I love a good holiday and I like parts of the story of baby jesus, but I believe in it as much as I believe in zeus or any of the other greek mythological figures. It's fiction to me. Anyone else like this here?

Yes I do. I was raised as a Christian, and my parents are christians. But I no longer believe in relogion, nor follow any. My parents (mom mostly) state that they believe, but from what I see, they only pray when they're in difficulties, and never go to church (they used to when I was a kid.. (my mother didn't work back then))
So yeah, we celebrate it like any other hollyday, and in Madeira (Portugal) there is a big fuss about the new year with lots of fireworks (it was once in the guiness book record for the biggest ammount of shots fired I think) so it's just like a buch of days that resembles hollydays and everyone makes a big party out of it regardless of being religious or not.0
