I'm just wondering what is the first thing that come up in your mind if I ask you about Chirstmas? Santa Claus? Gifts? Christmas tree? Christmas lights? ... How about Jesus Christ birthday? ... Are we not Celebrating Jesus Christ birthday? Its funny because in house decoration (for Christmas) its feel empty if theirs no Christmas tree. But have you seen a house that has no Christmas tree but has a three kings?

Santa Claus, also known as Saint Nicholas, Father Christmas or simply SANTA, is a legendary figure who, in many western cultures, brings gifts to the homes of the good children during the late evening of Christmas Eve. There has been some opposition to teaching children to believe in Santa Claus. Other critics feel that Santa Claus is an elaborate lie, and that it is unethical for parents to teach their children to believe in his existence. And some point out that the Claus tradition is a good example of how children can learn to be good. Because being good can lead us to happy Christmas morning, GIFTS! hahaha Tradition may differ from beliefs bulastika. Not even mentioning the Religion. I think this should depend on the parents. I don't know anyone not mentioning Jesus Christ on Christmas. ^_^
