Why is the spirit of giving only done during Fake Holidays?
Why not give to others anytime of the year?
People are all ways in need. You can give children gifts whenever and not lie to them about dumb characters like Santa....
Lying is not right
@football guy, it’s up to you choose to worship God or Man and it’s clear you Worship man. You believe in manmade traditions and lies.
Jesus was not born in December and none of his followers commemorated his birth. They were told to commemorate his death only. Birthdays are pagan as well.
It’s nice to give to others but I would be careful who you support and why. Why would anyone want to support something based on lies?
Jehovah’s Witnesses were not mentioned here. You do not need to be a JW to see lies in the system. You just need to do your research

Luke 6:39 Then he also told them an illustration: “A blind man cannot guide a blind man, can he? Both will fall into a pit, will they not?
Romans 1:25 even those who exchanged the truth of God for the lie and venerated and rendered sacred service to the creation rather than the One who created, who is blessed forever. Amen.
John 8:32 and you will know the truth, and the truth will set you free.”Romans 2:8 however, for those who are contentious and who disobey the truth but obey unrighteousness, there will be wrath and anger.
2 Thessalonians 2:11 That is why God lets a deluding influence mislead them so that they may come to believe the lie,
2 Timothy 4:4 They will turn away from listening to the truth and give attention to false stories.
M’Clintock and Strong’s Cyclopædia says: “The observance of Christmas is not of divine appointment, nor is it of N[ew] T[estament] origin. The day of Christ’s birth cannot be ascertained from the N[ew] T[estament], or, indeed, from any other source.”—(New York, 1871), Vol. II, p. 276.Luke 2:8-11 shows that shepherds were in the fields at night at the time of Jesus’ birth. The book Daily Life in the Time of Jesus states: “The flocks . . . passed the winter under cover; and from this alone it may be seen that the traditional date for Christmas, in the winter, is unlikely to be right, since the Gospel says that the shepherds were in the fields.”—(New York, 1962), Henri Daniel-Rops, p. 228.The Encyclopedia Americana informs us: “The reason for establishing December 25 as Christmas is somewhat obscure, but it is usually held that the day was chosen to correspond to pagan festivals that took place around the time of the winter solstice, when the days begin to lengthen, to celebrate the ‘rebirth of the sun.’ . . . The Roman Saturnalia (a festival dedicated to Saturn, the god of agriculture, and to the renewed power of the sun), also took place at this time, and some Christmas customs are thought to be rooted in this ancient pagan celebration.”—(1977), Vol. 6, p. 666.The New Catholic Encyclopedia acknowledges: “The date of Christ’s birth is not known. The Gospels indicate neither the day nor the month . . . According to the hypothesis suggested by H. Usener . . . and accepted by most scholars today, the birth of Christ was assigned the date of the winter solstice (December 25 in the Julian calendar, January 6 in the Egyptian), because on this day, as the sun began its return to northern skies, the pagan devotees of Mithra celebrated the dies natalis Solis Invicti (birthday of the invincible sun). On Dec. 25, 274, Aurelian had proclaimed the sun-god principal patron of the empire and dedicated a temple to him in the Campus Martius. Christmas originated at a time when the cult of the sun was particularly strong at Rome.”—(1967), Vol. III, p. 656.

You are quite right, which is why I give to others all year.

Christmas is a lovely thought of celebrating the birth of Christ, our Lord and Savior. But it should be kept holly. Family gathering together, praising His birth and giving thanks. But the Catholic Church had to go and wrap it in pagan rituals, like, Christmas Caroling ,Kissing Under the Mistletoe ,Gift-Delivering Mythical Beings ,Decking the Halls ,Hanging Ornaments ,Eating Fruitcake, Giving presents, Christmas Holly, The Yule Log, Candy Canes. These are all pagan rituals. I believe this sadden Our Lord, that Christians mix the ways of the world with the celebration of His birth.

People, including myself, do charitable work throughout the year.
You jehovah's witnesses are liars.
You say the same thing about celebrating birthdays and other holidays.
We help and care for our families 365, and we would never shun them for not believing as we do.
How many charities does your filthy cult have?
That's right, not a ONE.
You people are the epitome of misery.
All you do is insult, condemn, and lie.
Nobody is asking you to celebrate anything, because we don't give a sh*t.
Stop shunning your kids and clean up that child rape in your cult.

It’s not about pleasing God in churches, it’s always been about pleasing oneself, gaining followers and preaching lies.
Jesus did not ask anyone to celebrate his birth or was he born in December. Christmas is a manmade celebration born from pagan rituals and lies.
Some People want to do what they want they don’t care about reasons or consequences. They definitely are not true Christians because of it.

None of my presents say, "From Santa". We've been fortunate in our lives and give regularly to churches, fund raisers, and charities. Christmas is a holiday to celebrate the birth of Christ to us.
Why not, you do what you do, and we'll do what we do? A couple things we do, own our words and don't belittle what you choose to do.

Christmas is when the charities come out in large numbers. People give all year long but mostly at Christmas. For most, it's not because of Santa. even though a jolly old soul was he.
