    Christmas is for non Christians, as it is a pagan holiday. Please do the research. Nowhere in the bible is Christmas and certainly not Santa Claus. Jesus was not even born on Christmas Day. And even if he was do scriptures tell us to celebrate Jesus birth? No. Scriptures tell us to celebrate his death.

      The early Christians did not celebrate Christmas or Easter, nor do true Christians  today. Christmas and its customs come from ancient false religions.  The same is true of Easter customs, such as the use of eggs and rabbits.

    You have the right to bin any cards sent to you by non-Christians and refuse gifts. You can also refuse to visit  them in the holiday season if their celebration offend your sensitivities.  If own a store you could make your views known - and have the festive section in a separate room that can be closed off. Customers would only be allowed in by giving proof they are a Christian. (I don't know how you could do this - but you are probably smart enough to figure a way.)  The festive section would sell cards, gift wrap , decorations  and  anything packaged with a festive theme. 

    It would be more difficult to stop customers buying  items from the main part of the store as presents though. For example how do you know if someone is buying an item for them self, someone they normally shop for , or especially for Christmas?  I think your staff will feel  awkward about cross-examining customers.  The only reason not to serve someone is if  they try to buy goods they are under-age for.

    Christmas is a farse, always has been, always will be.  IF you WERE a true "Christian", YOU would not do the whole Christmas game either.  BTW, the 25th was NOT dudes birthday anyway.

    They don't celebrate Christ's birth. They use it as a "feel-good" secular holiday but they can't get around the reason for the season no matter how hard they try. "MERRY CHRISTMAS!"

    Why are non-Irish folks allowed to celebrate St. Patrick's day?  Why are non-mathematicians allowed to celebrate Pi day?

    Is this the new form of the 'Why are there atheists in the religion section?' question?

    All of the Christmas customs practiced today were practiced by pagans long before Jesus was born, so called "Christians" stole the day from the pagans.

      Sin does. Try not to sin. You'll see who owns who.
