This atheist loves Christmas because it is a continuation of a very valuable tradition where villages share resources to help each other survive harsh winters. But more importantly, it celebrates and nourishes a core fundamental trait of Christianity that has made the modern world so comfortable: sharing unconditionally.

Wow I didn’t know that most if not half have been written by Jews Christmas songs that is that is so phenomenal! In the Bible as you know the Bible says I will bless those who bless Israel and I will curse those who curse is Israel we need to pray for this country because President Trump has done wonders for keeping the alliance and the love of the Israel nation with our nation. That’s why we so adamantly believe that God is going to put President Trump into the White House again for another four years! Because Biden will not love Israel. This is my second time listening to you now thank you! I do apologize for not putting punctuations in you see I don’t type I speak into my computer and so in speaking I don’t put punctuation into my sentences so I hope that you can read my rambling on. God bless America God bless Israel God bless President Trump God bless vice President pence and God bless you sir shalom by the way what a beautiful word shalom

Christmas is about the birth of of Jesus, not about if he's the Messiah or not. It should be OK to wish a Jew Merry Christmas since Jesus was Jewish and taught Jewish values and beliefs. As a Christian, I don't get offended if you wish me a happy anything.

Remember when a calm, a beauty came across the land? Decorations went up, old movies started to play, classics from childhood. Then it became more about how to be offended by absolutely nothing, then came how dare you say "Christmas" I was once told by a manager, no, we can't decorate (working at a community college in a very Christian town) and was told lights COULD offend some.absolutely ridiculously backwards that was over 10 years ago.

Dennis Prager is an amazingly intelligent and warmhearted man, a true American patriot, who understands that the philosophical and religious foundations of Western culture played a huge part in our common success. God bless the USA, help Western Europe to reconnect with its Christian roots and God preserve Central and Eastern Europe. Very Merry Belated Christmas to everyone!

Mr prager, I grew up thinking that I was a bnei anussim, a DNA test showed that I was just a Portuguese , so because I love Hashem I finished my conversion, I love your channel, yet I can’t say. Merry Christmas, offended isn’t the word, Christianity was evil to Jews ( blood libels), thank you for loving America, two Jews 3 opinions right? But the importance of religion is cherished by me, I love America, I love president Trump, and I love Hashem, toda mr. Prager

I prefer Merry Christmas, but am not offended by Happy Holidays, as it means holy days. We Catholics have 8 solemn days of worship for Christmas, like Jews for Hannukah, and our Christmas season lasts until the Baptism of Christ, which is the 2nd sunday of January. Hence this is a holy season with many holy days, celebrating the birth and early life of Christ

I was at the grocery store checking out, as the female clerk with pink hair was handing me the receipt they said "Happy holidays!" in that cheery, liberal way. I closed my eyes and said a quick prayer "Jesus, give me the strength to show your glory through me. Amen" and opened my eyes and said "Merry Christmas, Jesus loves you!". The pink haired liberal immediately broke down crying and said "I feel the spirit! Merry Christmas! Thank you!". Everyone in the line proceeded to weep. Since I am classically trained in singing I proceeded to sing "Away in a Manger". A large crowd gathered and sang along. It was deeply moving!

I live in a new construction neighborhood in CO where they are building new houses nearby. On Christmas day, ALL day, the construction workers were working. They were working all day on Eve and the day after too and Sunday. I got angry. I don't know why but I was like wtf. Like we're they forced to? Did they choose to not take ANY days off? So confusing. Should I be offended by them working? I don't know but I definitely was

Wow! The God of Israel would be ashamed of you! I'm a Christian who grew up celebrating christmas but when a messianic rabbi told me that christmas and easter had pagan origins I was highly offended! So I set out to prove him wrong but couldn't. So through prayer, Bible study, and lots of crying, I gave up christmas! I now celebrate Yeshua's birth at Sukkot and His resurrection at Pesach. The God of Israel doesn't want to be worshipped the way the nations do their gods. You can't amalgamate ancient festivals like saturnalia and yuletide and slap Jesus' Name on them as validation like the church has done! I invite you to confess Yeshua the Son of God as your Lord, and serve the God of Israel in holiness! Love in Messiah Yeshua!

I am Jewish and religious. And I get so vexed by this topic in the UK as well. I live in a Christian country and are grateful for this kind country and how good it has been to my people. Why would I find it offensive that the majority of the population celebrate a holiday I don’t? The vast majority of minorities feel the same and its condescending white liberals that are blaming us for the reason they do this, rather than admit it’s their way of getting rid of religious freedom to advance their socialist/communist agenda.

There is no “war on Christmas”. People say happy holidays to include all of the holidays around this time like Chanukah, Christmas, and Kwanzaa. It’s to just be respectful of everyone’s religion. It is also good to say merry Christmas, as it always is. It isn’t that complicated.

All I know is that Holiday just means vacation like a birthday Holiday or a camping Holiday it just does not really fit well. I live Merry meaning Cheerful, bright, warm happy feeling and Christmas for good doers, good people Christian like when someone does something nice we normally call him or her what a good Christian and we celebrate a wonder and good king of his birth Jesus that happened to be very Christian a very good person that was nice and help others. Merry Christmas is wonderful and good giving a little love making it very special every year.

You’re a great man Denis. I listen to you just about everyday. My boys are 8 & 10 and they listen to you and watch prager university shows. I hope you live a long time. People like my wife and I need you to help reinforce our beliefs into our family. I can’t afford private school so our boys are in public. I actually had to argue with my 8 year olds about “winter break”. I told him that if it wasn’t for Christmas he’d have no winter break. He realize what I was in about. I hate to say it but the US is just about to crumble in socialism. The cancer has spread beyond the cure.

Actually, Shabbat Shalom means "Peaceful Sabbath". Literally, it's "Sabbath of Peace" (the genitive form), but we translate as "Peaceful Sabbath". Similarly, we don't say "Shabbat k'doshah" (literally "the holy Sabbath", with an adjective); rather we say "Shabbat Kodesh" (Sabbath of holiness), yet in English it's better to translate as "the holy Sabbath". Also, Shabbat is the only way to say Saturday in Hebrew, so "Shabbat Shalom" is also used by non-religious Jews who don't keep the Sabbath. It's like saying, "good (Satur)day", or "have a good weekend". So I don't know if it's the best analogy.

Are you being serious? This is my struggle with the religious. I actual like/enjoy many religious expressions, the music, the fellowship, the celebrations. The struggle and challenge for me is that some religious, like Dennis, use a passive technique of forcing others to acknowledge and respect their religious practices.....umm, news flash, nobody is and ever should be forced to acknowledge anything..ever! Then they label their doing as '@merican' if all its citizens think and operate the same. The nerve of you Dennis to imply that the person who rejects a religious policy is somehow a narccist??? What??? Non religious ppl in general prefer to be left alone and don't wish to have an opinion on any religious thought. They typically respond in defense, when anything is forced upon them. It's very sad...and a disgrace. Then again, I expect no different. All 3 monotheistic faiths actually teach and implore it's followers that they are chosen, special in the eyes of their God, and all others 'must' accept it, OR ElSe!!!

Our family wishes everyone a merry Christmas during Christmas season . Our 7th grader wished his classmates a hearty “ Merry Christmas “ after his teacher said “ happy holidays “ - all classmates started wishing one another a merry Christmas. The teacher very quickly cut off the Zoom Call of his class . It was one of my best Christmas gifts ever. God bless us each and every one - even the atheists. My heart tells me this is how to raise our children ❤️❤️. Thank you all for this wonderful production 🎄 & 🕎
