I celebrate mostly Christian holidays but I honor any person of devout faith who strives for world peace and love.

I am not a religious person and therefore I can celebrate almost any holiday with joy and satisfaction!

I'm a person who has faith. I have faith that there is a higher power, where they reside/exist though is anyone's guess. For all of my science fiction leanings, I do believe there is a universal force. I don't necessarily call it God/Goddess, but I have faith that something is out there. My faith is not easily named and cannot be categorized on a form. The last time I was in hospital, they asked my faith and I think I told them I was Pagan. I suppose that's as close a classification as I can get.
I celebrate the love of this season by getting together with family. We are not a family who puts much stock in 'stuff' but we're smart enough to know that one more day/week/month/year with each other is a gift.

I am a Christian, but I don't attend church. I do pray often throughout the day. I respect anyone else's loving faith. :)

Not a religious person. I celebrate where ever I can. At dawn. At dusk. In wonder at so many things...

Sliver Willow beat me to it. My thoughts exactly. When I was a child I told my parents I wanted to be Jewish. It seemed to me they had more holidays.

I am somewhat religious and I celebrate Ramadaan, when we fast for a whole month (from Sunrise to Sunset) and with the money we save we try to help the hungry and the needy no matter where they come from. Also since I am in America I do give out gifts to my Christian friends and coworkers and wish my Jewish Friends and coworkers Happy Hanukkah. My Hindu friends get a Happy Diwali wish from me.

I'm a Christian and attend a Quaker church occasionally. I don't celebrate any religionous holidays but celebrate Christmas because it means time with family and loved ones.

I celebrate the holidays of my Christian faith. I try to regularly attend mass, but when that is not an option, I have no trouble with taking it to the Father in prayer, irregardless of where I am.

I celebrate Christmas as a touch of warmth in a cold and dark season. I did have latkes for my Christmas dinner though.

I'm not religious, but I enjoy any holidays that are on the calendar, although I don't 'celebrate' with whatever foods and rituals are common to any particular holiday.

I am answerîng on my new tablet. Ofcourse I am devoted to my creator but belong to my own faith whether in à church or not. I do not agree with organized religion but in a personal one. I pray a lot. Christmas yep sabbath. yep grace yep. Accountable. Mindful of trying not to hurt anyone. I believe we will answer for our wrongs.

Wow this teeny keyboard is tough to do!

I don't actually "celebrate" any of the holidays. I may on occasion fix myself a special dinner on Christmas or Thanksgiving but that's pretty much it. I am both aware and respectful of most holidays, particularly Christian and Jewish. As far as the religious aspect, I keep that quite personal.

P.S... The 'deleted comment' was mine. Me & Blogger had a disagreement!! :)

I am not religious, but I would say I am spiritual. There's a difference. I love Christmas, but it is a secular holiday for me, centered on friends, family, and food.
