You may be wondering why this is even a question? Obviously, Christmas is a religious holiday for Christians all over the world. In fact, it is probably considered to be the de facto religious holiday on the Christian calendar. However, this site seeks to provide Bible answers according to what the Bible authorizes. We’re not interested in what culture thinks, or tradition, or religious leaders. We are only interested in what the Bible (e.g. God) says about it…
HowScriptureanswers "Is Christmas a religious holiday?"
There is no scripture that declares Christmas a religious holiday. While the birth of Christ is something to rejoice about1, there is no biblical authority that Christians should memorialize His birth. To the contrary, Jesus establishes His death as a memorial2. The Lord’s Supper was confirmed by the apostle Paul as something to be practiced by the local church each first day of the week3.
