    Thanks for sharing. I had forgotten that about the Puritans & Quakers.

    They did it only once, at the birth itself, so it does not qualify as being what we are referring to.

    Santa Claus not religious? How is "Saint Nick" not a religious reference?
    Of course, the sacred has been mixed with the profane, but association being fully denied seems forced.

    i hadnt thought of it like that, how would we know how old we are if we didnt celebrate birthdays. i wouldnt know i was old if my birthday wasnt marked off each year!! i'm glad where i am we make them a happy time.
    i love celebrating birthdays :) especially my nephews and neice, they get so excited and i love making them feel special and celebrating who they are. its teaches them to give joy to others too...and its another excuse for me to buy them presents :) i do other times too but birthdays are a great opportunity to give. mind you it is something i find great joy in giving so i look forward to being able to do that a lot!! birthdays are about giving. its a beautiful thing. the wise men came with gifts historians reckon it was a couple of years after Jesus was born, with presents celebrating His birth, how wonderful it would have been to see them turn up with presents!!! its a happy time :)
    a friend of mine loves to celebrate everything, birthdays, milestones, getting a new job, anything and everything is a reason to have an event and celebrate, its a joy to be around! :) makes me smile just thinking about it. it is a glimpse of God to me the way she is about life. i think God must be like that, celebrating life with joy :)

    “Or if there is a woman who has ten silver coins, if she should lose one, won’t she take a lamp and sweep and search the house from top to bottom until she finds it? And when she has found it, she calls her friends and neighbors together. ‘Come and celebrate with me’, she says, ‘for I have found that coin I lost.’ I tell you, it is the same in Heaven—there is rejoicing among the angels of God over one sinner whose heart is changed.”

    If one celebrates because they found a coin they lost, how much more should we Celebrate with others for personal matters?

    When a person comes to Christ there is celebration in heaven. Let it be on earth as it is in heaven.
