Tale of Two Christmases

In America today, there really are two distinct holidays celebrated on and around December 25th. Both celebrations are called "Christmas." One is a cultural celebration while the other is religious. These are not necessarily mutually exclusive although it seems common for people to observe one and not the other.

See the seminary blog for my post "Keep the Mass in Christmas."

I read your post and it made perfect sense because it is the same here in the U.K. (We also have churches which no longer hold a midnight on Christmas Eve because of drunks and trouble-makers).

It is absolutely two celebrations, Christmas and Krismas. Where they meet can be quite interesting.
