'Everyone' Celebrates Xmas Now?

I noticed in Friendster, people were wishing people who weren't Christians 'Merry Christmas'. Actually, they were wishing one another. Christmas has become something like Happy New Year, where it's not limited to a particular race or religion.

It's funny really. Christmas has become so commercialized. It's not a sacred celebration among the Christians anymore. The reason for celebrating Christmas has changed. It's no longer to commemorate the birth of Jesus, it's become something else, I don't know what.

Now, everyone celebrates everything. Suddenly, everyone is celebrating Hari Raya, Deepavali, Chinese New year and Christmas. They might just not go to work a few days before the celebrations. Their excuse would be, 'Oh, few more days Deepavali already.' And they are not even Hindus! Maybe they want to celebrate together too.

In this rat race world where more and more people are working harder to reach their life goals or whatever, so I guess any celebration would be their excuse to just relax for a while. Maybe. =/
