What percentage of annual sales do the holidays represent?
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.

I would like to pass along a thought about Christmas Trees. Real trees cut down from a tree farm and placed in a home brings a very dangerous risk of a fire. If a real tree catches on fire in a home. It will consume the entire room in 15 seconds.

There’s no putting out a fire like that with a hand held fire extinguisher. If one is going to use a real tree then it’s best to place it outside away from the house. Some people insist on a real tree in the house.

For those who use real trees be sure the tree is watered and maintained. A tree IV is another way to keep the tree watered. Also there are flame retardant products available.

Please make fire safety a priority this holiday season.

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.
