Wow, cannot believe it’s been 5 years since making this brief “Gratitude” video. (Been meaning to make others since; busy raising 4 kids, etc.)
Gratitude is my year-round attitude!
My odd sense of humor finds: it amusingly ironic that some, who “claim” to be non-religious or non-believers in God, participate in rituals and traditions based on/steeped in religion. And on the flip-side, some who “claim” to be believers or Christians–yet practice traditions or rites steeped in paganism…when researched, many of these so-called Christian traditions, are no where to be found (nor were practiced) among the first-century followers of Christ.
My choice of practice regarding anything: When in doubt, sit it out!-lol:)

Interesting article excerpts Why some Christians choose not to celebrate:
Jesus commanded that we commemorate his death, not his birth.—Luke 22:19, 20.
Jesus’ apostles and early disciples did not celebrate Christmas. The New Catholic Encyclopedia says that “the Nativity feast was instituted no earlier than 243 [C.E.],” more than a century after the last of the apostles died.
There is no proof that Jesus was born on December 25; his birth date is not recorded in the Bible.
Why make Christmas an issue?
Many still celebrate Christmas despite knowing about its pagan roots and lack of support from the Bible. Such persons could ask: Why should Christians take such an unpopular stance? Why make it an issue?
The Bible encourages us to think for ourselves, to use our “power of reason.” (Romans 12:1, 2) It teaches us to value the truth. (John 4:23, 24) So while we are interested in how others view us, we adhere to Bible principles even if it means that we become unpopular.
Although we choose not to celebrate Christmas ourselves, we respect each person’s right to decide for himself in this matter. We do not interfere in the Christmas celebrations of others. [excerpted reading: Why Don’t Jehovah’s Witnesses Celebrate Christmas–(though Christians who believe in Jesus)?]
