Only bad Christians celebrate Christmas

After settling in the New World the Pilgrims did not celebrate Christmas. They knew that it was a pagan holiday. The Christmas Tree was specifically forbidden in the Bible.

2 This is what the LORD says:
"Do not learn the ways of the nations
or be terrified by signs in the sky,
though the nations are terrified by them.

3 For the customs of the peoples are worthless;
they cut a tree out of the forest,
and a craftsman shapes it with his chisel.

4 They adorn it with silver and gold;
they fasten it with hammer and nails
so it will not totter.

5 Like a scarecrow in a melon patch,
their idols cannot speak;
they must be carried
because they cannot walk.
Do not fear them;
they can do no harm
nor can they do any good."

-- Jeremiah 10:2-5

Yes, false idols and all that stuff.

Did you celebrate Christmas?

Yep. Lights, small plastic tree, visiting relatives, gifts, all that. But I'm not a good Christian. I'm a Dougintologist.

I'm not Christian either.

I don't celebrate Christmas.
