For some retailers, the holiday season can represent anywhere between 20–40% of annual sales. In 2011, holiday sales represented 19.5% of total retail industry sales.

As much as Atheist in general despise the Christmas Holidays. Retail business depend on those sales to be profitable. Small retail business need that cash flow.

Also worth noting charities such as the Salvation Army depend upon those giving during the Christmas Holidays. Christ birth means more than salvation. It also represents prosperity to those countries that celebrate the Christmas Holiday.

So what you're pointing out is that your religion has turned the conceptual "temple" of the Jesus, into a market place, full of buyers, sellers, thieves and other that use that "temple" for financial gain, and not for worship.

To those who are interested in World Politics.

Mexico has a new President, Enrique Peña Nieto. The last six years have been brutal with over 60,000 murdered. I can only hope this new President can reduce the crime wave significantly.

If you will look at the long history of Christmas giving. It started out as charitable giving and it continues to be linked with charities today. The tradition of giving has branched out into a flourishing tradition.

I would encourage you to join in the giving and help some family by helping in the Christmas food and toy drive.

Wiki:

Christmas really is an amazing time of year when you think about the fact that this is the single major event in the last 2,000 years that is celebrated by most of the world. While the birth of Christ and the Christmas story can seem removed from our lives today and it's origins while subject to debate, the celebration is an overwhelming testimony to the event.

The exact date that Jesus Christ was born is not known. The first Christmas was not celebrated until the year 350 AD when Pope Julius I officially designated December 25 to celebrate Christ's birth.

The origin of gift giving seems to have multi-faceted roots.

We have many recorded events in history that show the giving and receiving of gifts dates back at least to the 4th century. St. Nicholas, a Christian Bishop, was known for his generosity in giving to those less fortunate than he, as well as giving to children of all backgrounds simply because he felt they needed to savor their childrood, and have joyous times to remember (contrary to the beliefs of that time, which would suggest that boys even as young as 8 be sent to work to help earn income for their families and girls as young as 5 to help their mothers with the housework and meal preparation). The most common gift given were homemade foods and sweets, oranges (this was a huge treat due to the fact they were very rare), handcrafted gifts such as socks, sweaters, dresses, nightgowns, blankets, tables, chairs, and other handmade useful items. This tradition began with St. Nicholas in Turkey. It moved throughout the world very quickly, and before the 10th century is is supposed that nearly every country was participating in this exchange.

Who despises christmas? Watching too much fox news? "War on christmas?" LOL.

Anyways, I think jesus would be ashamed with you. He wasn't the biggest fan of material possessions, and I doubt very much he would approve of a holiday whose main purpose is the glorification of material goods.

Bob,
Clementia is the figment of someone’s imagination. Her/his/it writing style changes constantly. Evidence of a fictional character being played out by a poster. You will notice that she/he/it leans more towards atheism.
These imposters make this site just plain weird. It’s always men pretending to be young beautiful women. From what I know about young beautiful women. They’re not going to be spending their time on a site like this.
Some of these men don’t know their talking to a regular atheist man when responding to Clementia. Men flirting with men, yuck.
05Dec12.....

.....of course you are most correct 'Eagle 12'

Ps:.....BobLoblah knows full vell dat 'clementia' is a dingBat and it confirms it by its own admission over and over.

SomeDimes, BobLoblah jest plays around with 'klutzes'.

Keep up da goot verk. Christmas is jest around da corner and ALL these hateful, hypocritical, hAtheists will be still going against 'da grain' while tossing back booze, turkey, and gravey....from donors, of course.
