Which holiday do you celebrate?

Pretty simple poll; the title says it all. I'm particularly interested in those who celebrate Christmas but who are not Christian, or those who celebrate unusual (in the US) holidays. Of course, this poll is designed for all.
Of the following, which start-of-winter holiday do you celebrate? If you celebrate more than one, please select the one that's MOST IMPORTANT to you.
Christmas
Hanukkah
Diwali
Kwaanza
Winter Solstice
Yule (Pagan)
Bodhi Day
New Year's Day/Eve
Chinese New Year
Other holiday (Please specify so I can add)

Yes (Other)
No (I'm Christian)
No (I'm Jewish)
No (Other)
For those who consider themselves as belonging to no particular religion (atheist, agnostic, etc.): Do you celebrate any religious winter holidays at all?
Yes (Christmas only)
Yes (Other)
No
For those who do not think of themselves as Christian: Do you celebrate Christmas? If so, why?
Yes - Because part of my family is Christian, and we celebrate it with them
Yes - Because it's a personal or family tradition, even though I'm/we're not religious
Yes - Because it's become a secular holiday, so it's not just for Christians
Yes - Because why should I be left out of the Christmas fun?
Yes - Because I celebrate with friends who are Christian, or who celebrate Christmas for their own reasons
Yes - Because doesn't everybody celebrate Christmas?
Yes - Other reason (please specify)
No
For those who think of themselves as Christian: What do you think of non-Christians celebrating Christmas?
Christmas is about the birth of Jesus Christ, so I don't see why they would celebrate it
Christmas has become a secular holiday, so it's understandable that non-Christians would celebrate it
It's good when non-Christians celebrate Christmas, because it's a potential first step towards accepting Jesus Christ
Non-Christians celebrating Christmas is a little weird when you think about it, but it's just a normal thing in my country
I don't care what non-Christians are doing

Yes - Other New Year (please specify so I can add)

Do you think of Christmas as being a religious holiday?
Yes
No
Semi-related question: Does it bother you at all when people go out of their way to say something generic like "Happy Holidays" instead of "Merry Christmas?"
Yes
No, but it seems unneccessary
No, I don't care one way or the other
No, and I don't like it when people say "Merry Christmas" without knowing what holiday the person celebrates
