Christmas is a tradition revolved around the concept of god, so do atheists celebrate it, and if so, isn't that ever so slightly hypocritical?

Celebrating a tradition born from the very concept atheists refuse to believe to me is slightly hypocritical. But, who am I to make that accusation, I celebrate it, I'm not a Christian . . .

I suppose it's like St. Patrick's day, I could join in the celebrations if I choose, doesn't mean I care who this Patrick was...

This has now become a major flaw in my head towards my belief that Christianity is flawed...

If I, as someone who doesn't believe much into Christianity, and you, as an atheist, celebrate Christmas, fully aware that we think the concept from which it was born is a lie, should we even want to celebrate it?

How many Islam traditions do we celebrate? how many Hindu traditions? they are in our country but we ignore them . . . yet celebrate the very traditions we deem to be false . . .

I think the concept of Christmas is one of those things that has evolved over the years into something completely different from when it was created.

Christmas in today's society is a fraud, it's just a cash cow and an excuse to get drunk and eat more food.

I can't remember the last time I had a Christmas and actually cast a thought towards our 'lord and saviour' jesus.

probably around the time I was expelled from school . . .
