Well, Christmas is exclusive to Christians like hanukkah is exlusive to Hebrews.
I'm well aware of traditions predating Christmas and the historical significance played in overlapping Christmas with pagan holiday to have it more easily accepted..but that doesn't mean atheists should celebrate Christmas. Why not celebrate hanukkah or kwanza? Mostly because it's so widely accepted that people go with it, even without believing in it.

Welcome to the quack pack. Nice grafitti!
Really, being an atheist, buying a tree, decorating your house and all that stuff is just funny. If you wanna give each other presents without all that, I don't see why not, but why go through all the motions of your modern day Christian Christmas if you don't believe? If hanukkah was the most celebrated/believed in holiday, I wouldn't light a minora.
