Christmas has become a business bonanza instead of a religious holiday. Thanksgiving is all about food and people can only eat so much. So big business doesn`t even bother with T-giving they just shoot straight to Christmas where the sky is the limit when it comes to corporate profits. Its no longer even Christmas its been X-mas for years. I wish Christmas was more like Thanksgiving...food,family and football. BTW many religious historians estimate Jesus was born in September.
