Christmas is traditionally a holiday created to commemorate the birth of Christ. Which of the following statements do you most closely identify with?

The religious significance of this holiday has been lost and more should be done to remind people of this. Let's put the "Christ" back in Christmas.
9(8.7%)
Christmas has become more of a commercial holiday than a religious one and I'm okay with that.
21(20.4%)
Christmas is really about Santa and presents for me. It has no religious significance.
23(22.3%)
Christmas is both a religious holiday and a commercial one for me. I observe both aspects of the holiday.
16(15.5%)
Christmas is a pain for me and I just wish it would pass as quickly as possible.
8(7.8%)
For me Christmas is mostly just a holiday, i.e. a break from work or school. It has no religious or commercial significance.
17(16.5%)
I can't really identify with any of these statements, and may comment about how I really feel.
9(8.7%)
