1: there is no "christ" in "christmas". if he did really live, most historians agree he was probably born in the spring, most likely april. i'm not a historian tho so you'll have to ask them if you want to know more.
2: how many "christmassy" things have anything to do with christianity anyway? just the nativity scene, wise men, and the star or angel on top, all tacked on by early missionaries to get folks to forget what it was really about. decorated evergreens, bells, big guys in red fur coats, deer with big antlers, yule logs, holly & ivy, cranberries, mistletoe, wreaths, feasting, spiked warm drinks, etc- all come from pre-christian euro-pagan rituals to ensure that life didn't *completely* end in midwinter. since relatively few people today follow religions based on that, then for the rest of us christmas is a non-religious "seasonal" holiday. anyone who says "jesus is the reason for the season" is sadly misinformed.
so unless you're into the "old-time religion", x-mas is just a chance to have fun. make the most of it!
