Is christmas losing popularity?

It kind of seems like that to me, that people nowadays don't care as much for christmas as they used to.

Help us keep this site organized and clean. Thanks!

  • "Losing popularity" in what sense exactly?

    As in fewer people treat it as a huge religious thing? (BTW, the Puritans actually banned the celebration of Christmas since they saw it as a pagan holiday.)

    As in people aren't putting up so many decorations? Not what I've observed.

    As in people are spending less on buying crap? Maybe, but if so, that's probably mainly about how much people can afford to spend, possibly combined with the fact that more people are finally recognising that Christmas is a huge commercial scam.

    As in people are pigging out less on the day itself? Dunno about that, but maybe; if so, it's probably mainly about changes in people's eating habits.

    As in people are treating the 25th of December as just another work day? I think that's probably not supported by real statistics either. (Another BTW: Within living memory, Christmas was pretty much treated as just another day in Scotland. The country went a bit bonkers on New Year's Eve, though.)

  • Commercial Christmas is a scam. Religious Christmas is also a scam because there is evidence that Jesus was actually born in the summertime, not december 25th.

    Then again, Im Jewish, so I dont really follow much of it anyway

  • Christmas has not so much been lost, but the meaning of Christmas has been lost, or at least twisted to be about consumerism.

  • As a retail worker I can say with confidence that it hasn't. People seem to be buying more stuff now more than ever. We just put up Christmas stuff and its already flying off the shelves. XD

  • I think slightly more people are thinking about the traditional meanings of Christmas that don't translate quite as well into commercial hype.

  • I fucking hope so, Christmas is probably the most overhyped and overrated holiday
