    I wouldn't be celebrating it but my family is really festive during the holidays and I really don't like stirring the pot when I don't need to.

    Well myself & the other 6 billion+ non US citizens don't.
    Not sure why many Canadians do though?

    I'm American and I don't celebrate any holiday. Neither does my family. We don't buy Christmas presents, we don't have parties, we don't gather as a family and cook food. Holidays are just a day off to us.

    LOL, Thanksgiving is just the harvest celebration in a few countries. Many other countries "celebrate" it just at different times with different names and customs.

    Hey doesn't sound like much fun!
    I'm anti religious & socially pressured holidays too.

    But I'm into celebration....apart from bdays, what do you celebrate?

    I don't celebrate my birthday either.

    I will celebrate wedding anniversaries. Most of my friends are old so they've been married 30+ years. That's amazing to me.

    But my birthday? Nope. It's not even listed on this site, and I never brought it up here when it came around.

    Being born is not an accomplishment.
