Christmas! Most of the time, people get excited about dinners and spending quality time with their families, my plan for the day is a little different. I would want to go to church and am about to go to my second service. Christmas is the day where we commemorate the birth of Christ. Lots of rumours have gone: it's the day of celebration for the Sun God. http://www.jesus-is-savior.com/False%20Religions/Other%20Pagan%20Mumbo-Jumbo/christmas.htm states the exact point. However, it has been said, what the devil use for his purpose, God can turn it around for good. like this passage says: 
Isaiah 60:7 All Kedar’s flocks will be gathered to you, 
   the rams of Nebaioth will serve you;
   they will be accepted as offerings on my altar,
   and I will adorn my glorious temple.
meaning that even Nebaioth, said to be the son of Ishmael, the roots of Muslim, even their flocks when sacrificed, gives off a smell, like a sweet offering.
9 Surely the islands look to me; 
   in the lead are the ships of Tarshish,[a] 
bringing your children from afar, 
   with their silver and gold, 
to the honor of the LORD your God, 
   the Holy One of Israel, 
   for he has endowed you with splendor.
Tarshish- represents Tyre, 
a nation that is prosperous, filled with wealthy merchants however, isaiah 23: 15 states that they too have strayed away. They believe in idol worship and the lead that they bring are what they use for idol worship. This just show what God can do. 
It is about the concept, the purpose of its use. Is it for or against God? 
The same goes for credit cards. Even how any people go bankrupt each day due to it, those that use it wisely and for the purpose of God and the church, will stay prosperous.
Therefore, friends, it is not about the reason of the ancients, but what is YOUR REASON in celebrating Christmas that matters to God and if it is for Christ, then God will be pleased.
