    Mate, it's a major commercial enterprise. Many large and small retail businesses here make their main profit at Xmas.

    Christ went out of Christmas a long time ago, possibly starting about the time that Coca Cola invented the modern and now standard image of Santa Claus. http://www.coca-colacompany.com/stor...re-santa-claus

    Down here, it's a religious event for the minority of our population who are serious Christians. For the rest it's more about an end of year celebration focused on getting together with family and friends without any religious content. It's enjoyed by plenty of people who aren't Christians, notably many Muslims who join in the getting together with family and friends.

    Go to some Muslim dominated countries such as Malaysia and you'll find that their retail stores are happily getting into the swing of making money at Xmas. (BTW, contrary to ill informed people who think that X rather Christ is insulting, the X for Christ has been used for centuries by religious people, as in letters and notes I've had from Catholic priests here who signed "Yours in X').

    There are, of course, hardliners in Muslim countries who oppose Xmas and even Santa hats. http://www.nytimes.com/2016/12/23/wo...tmas.html?_r=0

    Which is why it never took off in communist countries.

    Marketing requires individual enterprise instead of central control by a bureaucracy committed to making sure that nobody has any fun.

    Seriously, there are three aspects to Xmas in the West.

    1. The commercial exercise where businesses engage energetically in the basic capitalist tactic of trying to separate people from their money. That is the marketing aspect.

    2. The real Xmas experienced by many people, which is about family for those who have family and, often, charity for those who don't. And various traditions, such as it being the only time soldiers in our army are served lunch by their senior NCOs and officers.

    3. The Xmas experienced by people like me, who see it as a pain in the arse because it requires us to engage in 1. and 2. above and pretend we actually give a shit.

    This is coz you are married - the Xmass is turned to you into boring bustle. The adequate people like Nick or TG just spend xmass easy , alone with alcohol Seems this is the best way to celebrate the New Year !

    It's some of Both for most Christian Americans, to some it is a very Holy day, to others merely a tradition of gift giving, and family gatherings, but having no particular Religious significance. Your Country has Sviatyi Vechir, (Holy Evening) Which usually (IIRC) includes a special large meal, and singing of Caroles (Koliadky )
    I dont know if this was the way of Ukraine before 1917, or if it continued after, but it sounds like it was an important part of Christmas. And, lets not forget Grandfather Frost. (I know, I look like him. ) I wish you a very peaceful, safe, and prosperous New Year friend Chevan !

    That's great, dear friend TG! Very nice to hear the warm words form you. And yes, you looks much like model Grandfather frost in your last public photo , i remember)))) Yet i m very impressed - you know about Koliadki. It was very popular before 1917 but now is dying event. Plus i'm very critical about Ortodox church - as about any religia as well. Newertheless i glad to any incoming holidays, and possibilities to congratulate all of you , guys with happy days, whatever it is..
