Christmas Matters

December 24, 2010

There have been many attempts to reduce the importance of Christianity and Christian beliefs in America. Sadly, the folks who dislike America and its fine traditions simply will not give up.

Opinion polls say they are incorrect:

For an overwhelming number of Americans who celebrate Christmas, Jesus Christ is the Son of God.

New Rasmussen Reports polling finds that 87% of Americans celebrate Christmas in their family, and 70% of that group recognize it as a religious holiday celebrating the birth of Christ rather than a secular one. Twenty-seven percent (27%) celebrate Christmas as a secular holiday. (To see survey question wording, click here)

This consistent with findings earlier this month and over the previous two holiday seasons.

Among those who celebrate Christmas, 81% believe Jesus Christ is the son of God sent to Earth to die for our sins. Nearly the same percentage (83%) also think that Jesus Christ actually walked the Earth 2000 years ago. Slightly fewer (73%) believe Jesus Christ was born to the Virgin Mary.
