I fail to understand why people try to take Christ out of Christmas. If you're not a believer that's fine, but that doesn't negate why Christmas exists in the first place.
Christmas exists thanks to an effort to Christianize the Roman Empire, putting the date at the end of the Roman holiday of Saturnalia. Why do you think it exists? Because Jesus wasn't born anywhere near December 25th, so Jesus isn't the reason for the season, but drunkenness and sexual exploits are. Enjoy!
