Al Jazeera asks: "Is Christmas becoming a secular holiday?"

The video strikes me as fair and balanced.

Is Christmas becoming a secular holiday?, at Al Jazeera America

A growing number of Americans don't identify with a religion. Some see Christmas as a cultural, not religious, holiday.

Somehow, this year it was possible to avoid most of the mercantile excess and focus more on the pagan, solstice angles that make the holiday meaningful for an atheist like me.

Having said this, I hope all readers enjoy the day as they will, for whatever reason. Cheers.
