Some Hebrew Christians don't or Messianic Jews. Maybe for "peace sake", with other family members. From what I've heard from friends.

Wow, I didn't know some Christian denominations didn't celebrate those holidays. I just assumed they taught the true meaning behind them instead of the materialistic version.

That's interesting. @Alicialynn86, how does your church handle other events like weddings? I ask because the typical wedding ceremony in the western culture is full of pagan origins as well (white dress, bridesmaids, etc.).

I was raised Pentecostal and we acknowledged but did not celebrate. The big celebration was Pentecost.

I currently go to a non-denominational church that is much like my former Pentecostal, and they do not celebrate any holidays.

We dont celebrate "major" holidays either due to the pagan origins. We do acknowledge Mothers day, Thanksgiving, New years

@TraciChanel
I am aware of the origins behind weddings rituals.We dont control anyone's actions, if they want to do a wedding, they can. But the standard has been set.

Christmas is different. Christmas started off as pagan idol worship with the sun and the moon , which was hundreds of years before Christ even came. then MAN came and stuck Christ name on it, thats of form of blapshemy because they put Christ name on something that never had anything to do. The Roman church put begin to mix with the practices of the pagan people, they started introducing them into the church. The bible never says Christ was born on Dec 25. Thats something that man has made. Christmas is centered around lies..ex..Santa Claus? Million of parents lie to their children about a man that does not exist, when the bible says ALL liars will have the part in the lake of fire.Could something that is centered around so much pagan ways, lying, etc because of God really> Trust me, if this was something of God, the world wouldnt have anything to do it....lol.... Even jeremiah 10 speaks of the Xmas tree.People go into debt, commit suicide, kill and steal to buy gifts for people and this is suppose to be about Christ..we should celebrate Christ every day of our lives by living holy.The apostles and the disciples never celebrated Christ birth, so I wont either..I can go on and on about this but I will stop now


But back to the wedding thing...A wedding rituals such as wedding gowns, bridemaids dresses etc was never something that had Christ name on it. Even today, its the same way...you have athiests that practice these wedding rituals..But the wedding itself is fine...thats the first place Jesus did a miracle..to each its own I guess. I wont have it in my wedding..


and Traci, FYI, i elaborated in this, just incase anyone wanted to know why i didnt celebrate.. I wasnt hounding on you, I wanted to do it in all one post..

@LittleGoldenLamb
I know right! Like you breaking a scripture or commandment...but when you tell them about fornication or adultery...you are judging them.....

I honestly don't think Jesus cares one whit about any of this. It is something that religious people argue amongst themselves about. I can easily imagine a scene in the Gospels with the Pharisees saying, "Lord, such and such a group believes that you ought to celebrate this holiday, but another group says it is wrong. What do you say?" And usually His answer was "other".

Honor the day unto the Lord or don't honor the day unto the Lord--just honor the Lord.
