If it's a Christmas celebration why has the name changed?...I'm curmudgeonly about things like that.

It had to be politically correct for all religions. With that being said...I feel the same way, it suppose to be a Christmas celebration!

I say, let them host their own celebrations then!...and let us enjoy our traditions...

I say the same thing. In fact, it would be interesting to celebrate all the other different traditions. However, we should keep and enjoy ours also. :>)
