    Christmas is so special because it is all about the coming of Christ, who saved the world.

    Because it is one of the only 2 times of year you get to be with all of your dysfunctional family instead of just some of them. The other being the summer family reunion and there even more special cause you get to see dysfunctional distant relatives that you probably don't see at Christmas like the redneck and alcoholic 3rd cousin once removed. At Christmas it is just the alcoholic uncle everyone covers up for or the racist aunt who cries out political rants.

    Because of the dichotomy of being a unique time of year when the suicide rate goes up and many people who no longer have families or are alienated from them tend to get very lonely and depressed, while other people have great family get-togethers, replete with eggnog and Christmas cookies, enjoying all the comforts of hearth and home while singing Christmas carols and opening presents under the tree. Visualize one of those old Norman Rockwell prints and you get the idea. Mesnwhile, many miles away, a homeless person curled up on a piece of cardboard on a NYC sidewalk in late December might have an uniquely different perspective on this particular time of the year. So it’s “special” in the sense of being particularly comforting to some, and unfathomably cruel to others.

    It's a hodge podge of fun traditions passed down since forever. There's something for everyone.

    It is the celebration of Jesus. The birth of him, that is why we celebrate this holiday
