Some Christians shun Christmas

The Washington Post has a very interesting article, Some Christians Shun Christmas and Its Trappings, about how some Christians don’t celebrate Christmas.

For some Christians, Christmas is just another day.

For them, there will be no Christmas tree, no Christmas wreaths, no Christmas lights, no Nativity scenes. Nor will there be that rich Christmas dinner, nor the traditional exchange of gifts.

“It’s not in the Bible,” said Arnold Hampton, 58, minister of the United Church of God Columbia, who hasn’t celebrated the holiday since 1966. “Jesus never mentioned it.”

Hampton is a member of a niche of Christians who reject the traditional Christmas holiday. Like Jehovah’s Witnesses and a few nondenominational churches scattered in the Washington region and nationwide, Hampton’s denomination, the United Church of God, will ignore Christmas Day.

For Christians who refuse — literally — to buy into Christmas, the season has too many secular trappings. Some consider it a pagan holiday with no basis in Christian scripture, while others say the holiday’s relentless consumerism turns them off so much that they’ve shut down the season altogether.

“I just don’t think that this whole idea of the commercial Christmas and our American view of Christmas is what God is really asking for,” said Kelvin Redmond, pastor of Body of Christ Church, a 900-member nondenominational congregation in Raleigh, N.C., that doesn’t celebrate Christmas. The holiday, said Redmond, has “been gobbled up by secularization.”
