do you pray at christmass

Report as

Since Christmas, short for "Christ's Mass", is a holiday (short for "holy day") to celebrate and relive the joy of the birth of the Christian figure Jesus Christ, and since I am Christian, I do pray on Christmas. Yet, God does not require Christians to pray on Christmas, and non-Christians obviously do not need or want to pray either.

I pray daily.

1 Thessalonians 5:16-18

16 Rejoice always, 17 pray without ceasing, 18 in everything give thanks; for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus for you.

Since I'm not a Christian, no. Christmas was originally a pagan holiday to celebrate the solstice, so my husband and I trend more towards that.

I'm curious, do you celebrate the solstice? Following your answers on here for the past few weeks, I didn't picture you celebrating any part of the holidays except for maybe the secular/political ones.

Not per se. I have several close friends who are pagan, and we often take part in their celebrations. And I can certainly see the sense in a celebration of the return of daylight- my husband gets particularly grouchy when there's little sun. I suppose we live in the wrong part of the country, considering.

No, I gave up on invisible friends years ago.

I pray every night. What god wants followers who only speak to him/her/it when it's a special occasion or they want something?

I'm constantly in communion with Him. He is my Strength, my Rock, my Fortress & Salvation. He is every reason I know him.

NO! Why would I? Christmas has nothing to do with religion.
