plus the roots of this celebration is not really christian but pagan. So many other cultures have a celebration during this time of the year, in association with the winter solstice.
My way to deal with the celebration is to embrace it and go beyond the christian connection.

a sort of optimistic transhumanist air, I'm sure." To celebrate the 
birth/creation/emergence of... NanoClaus, SantAI, etc.
