they celebratebut not in a religious way.
Some do and some don't. It depends on the person.
Of course other people can celebrate christmas. Christmas is a tradition, and it is more and more celebrated by christians and atheists alike. Christmas has become much more of a family thing as opposed to a religious thing.
Buddhists, Muslims, Atheists and Jews do not celebrate Christmas. Only Christians celebrate Christmas.
Hindus, Muslims, Jews, Jehovah's Witness, Buddhists, some atheists and agnostics do not celebrate Christmas.
Most Iranians are Muslims or Atheists, so they do not celebrate Christmas. The Christians who do live in Iran have unique traditions, as can be read about here.
A collection of suggestions:Like everyone else - Santa is not religious.They celebrate Christmas with eating, drinking, getting together with friends. Much the same as they celebrate any ethnic or religious festival that involves eating, drinking and getting together with friends. Christmas is no more special than Wesak, the Eid, the summer solstice, Darwin Day. Pi Day or Hogmanay.i dont belive in him but hey free presents! :DYes, atheists celebrate Christmas. We like to get presents just as much as Joe Christian. It is largely a secular holiday, what with all the commercialization of it.Atheists can celebrate Christmas. To them, it is more of a tradition, and atheists do value traditions. Most people do not need religion, a god, or jesus to value the gift of giving and to value spending time with family.There were festivals and celebrations at the time of the winter solstice long before there was a Christian church, for a couple of centuries at least before Jesus may have livedLike everyone who celebrates Christmas they do it without god or Jesus, Tjey are, however, aware of this fact.
Out of respect and conformity. Most Atheists don't try to convert people into atheists - they just want to be respected and for the world to know that they exist and shouldn't be disrespected. To show respect for others' holiday, we say Merry Christmas and truly wish people who do celebrate it have a joyous day of Dec. 25th.
It is unclear what the question is asking.If it is asking "Why do Non-Jews celebrate Christmas?", the answer would likely be: They celebrate it because they are Christians or Atheists from a Christian Background and connect with Christmas in a spiritual or familial way.If it is asking "Why do Jews not celebrate Christmas?", the answer would likely be: Most Jews ignore Christmas; it is simply not something of any importance to them in much the same way that Christians ignore Hanukkah, Eid al-Adha, or Diwali (which are Jewish, Islamic, and Hindu holidays) because they are not relevant to their tradition. Jews hold that their savior is not yet born, so it would be improper to celebrate the birth of a false Messianic Candidate.
For Christians, it is Christmas or Easter. For Jews it is Hanukkah or Roshashana.(sorry if im misspelling.) I am not sure for other religions though; or atheists.
AnswerAtheists celebrate the birth of a child just like anyone else. They also celebrate birthdays just like anyone else.
celebrating any holiday is a personal choice. There are no rules saying Atheist's cannot celebrate it, but most do not seeing ad they don't believe in god
A lot of atheists unknowingly celebrate Krismas in December. The concept of the giving, and sharing on Christmas, and the good memories associated with it still give atheists a strong tie to the holiday without the mythological backdrop of Jesus' birth.Answer:If by celebrate you mean get together with family and friends for food, drink, conversation and a generally good time without the repressive overtones of a religious event, then a few of the events we celebrate are:ChristmasYuleThe Winter SolsticeKwanzaChanukah/HanukkahOffice partiesNew Year's EveSaturnaliaFestivusAnswer2: Christmas supposedly commemorates the birth of Jesus Christ, and nearly every religion that claims to be Christian celebrates it. Yet, there is no evidence that the first-century disciples of Jesus observed such a holiday. The book Sacred Origins of Profound Things states: "For two centuries after Christ's birth, no one knew, and few people cared, exactly when he was born." For this reason if a person loves gift giving and fond memories this can be done any time during the whole year.
No, Andy Six is not religious. He is an Atheist. And Atheists are non-religious people.
Atheists do not hate Christianity, or for that matter Islam, Judaism, Jainism, Hinduism or any of the other of the world's religions. What atheists do is have a confidence that there is no god or gods. Many Christians and other religions see such an attitude as an abomination and the atheists refusal to accept their "proofs" for belief as a personal slap in the face. What does annoy atheists is the societal pressure to swear oaths for public office and coursts, participate in religious observances (Christmas, prayers before meetings etc.), government forms requesting religious affiliation, endless attempts to convert them, the general disrespect of their opinions and the blindness of the religious to their organization's problems.
There is no "Jewish Christmas". As Christmas is a celebration of Jesus and Jesus plays no role in Judaism at all, there is no Jewish celebration for him. There are many people who mistakenly believe that Chanukah is the "Jewish Christmas", however, this couldn't be further from the truth. Chanukah, which celebrates the successful rejection of forced assimilation, is the antithesis of Christmas.
there is no atheist day. atheists usually celebrate the local traditional holidays in a secular way for example my family celebrates Christmas with a xmas tree, gift giving and a big family lunch - this celebration has no religious significance or elements it is simply a time to get together with family and enjoy each others company I think other atheists in other traditions do the same thing by the way atheism is characterized by a lack of belief in a god or gods so atheists don't worship anything
Traditions do not necessarily involve religious observance. Even those with an overlay of religion like Christmas can be celebrated as the underlying folk tradition (Yule, Winter Solstice) In general atheists have been observed participating in anything that provides food, drink and the company of friends with no deeper thoughts than food, drink and the company of friends. The position that atheists are gloomy types who mope around the outside of Christmas parties wishing they could come in is somewhat exaggerated.
Since an atheist is only the position of unacceptance of god claims, they would celebrate like anyone else, such as cookouts, birthdays, Thanksgiving, Memorial Day, and even Christmas since the holiday is not strictly based on any Christian dogma
By far religious people commit suicide moe than atheists.
While opinions will vary by individuals, atheists generally disagree with the philosophies of religious people.Answer:It depends both on the person doing the viewing and the person they are viewing. There is no general atheist view of religious people any more than there is a bald persons' view of people with beards. For the most part atheists have no position of religious people in general. Some religious people and some atheists are so miserable that they cause strong reactions.
Some atheists do. However, the hypothesis that religious belief is facilitated by genetics is not universally agreed upon by atheists. This is not a central concept of atheism.
They do nothing athiests dont have a religion.
No for the most part we don't. However sometimes it is easier to at least acknowledge it. Its not likely everybody where you work is a Satanist. Its not likely all your family are Satanists either and chances are these people are going to expect something from you... even if it is only a card. I think its relevant to add, for the most part (even for some Christians) Christmas isn't completely about the birth of Jesus. Even staunch atheists celebrate Christmas.
No. Atheists do not seek any biblical role. They have no interest in religious writings nor having any role in them.
Exponentially less than religious people
Christmas and Easter are essentially Christian festivals and have no special meaning to followers of other religions or to atheists. However, many see the secular side of these festivals, including the value of family and friends, and can celebrate these aspects. Children, especially, love Santa Claus and Easter egg hunts. There are some Christians who do not celebrate Christmas or Easter because they either do not like the pagan associations, or do not believe there is a necessity to do so scripturally. Others simply see the events as an opportunity to commemorate Christ's birth or Resurrection rather than celebrate in the customary manner.
