why many people celebrate chrismas?is this written in the bible?is this God commandments or a manmade doctrine

when you read a bible you cannot see any verse related on celebrating a christmas especially the date december 25, when you search a history december 25 is a pagan feast. because the best foundation or basis of your belief is bible so if any commanments not found in a bible that is a manmade doctrine and not of God.

    Presents, Dude.... it's all about presents. And it has nothing to do with shooting rockets at Jews or blowing up Americans or beating your wife. It's just about the presents... Get with it. It's a hoot.

    Christmas is not anywhere in the bible, Jesus' exact birth date isnt even in the bible. we celebrate the birth of christ on dec 25 because that day was already special. it is also the celebration of the winter solstice. yes it was origionally a pagan holiday. I think it was chosen because it was an easy transition for new believers who were once pagan back in the day.

    Jesus Christ asked us specifically to remember his death.

    But made no mention of his birth.

    That is significant.

    It means that his death has ongoing consequences. Buying back for us the right to again live without death...forever....on the earth...Psalm 37; 9,11,29,34.

    His birth was just a means to an end.

    And Jesus is now a grown 'man/warrior'. he has left his childhood behind, like we all do. So to celebrate Jesus as still a baby, as many do at 'christmas' is in some ways an insult to his present abilities.

    It's just an appealing innovation to the Christians that doesn't contradict their beliefs; some still think that you must adhere strictly to what the Bible says because it is a complete guide to life. Peace and blessings. Happy Holidays! :)
