American holidays are great! They forgot Black Friday though. Anyway, my point is that there are other things that we can complain about America, but their festivities are very nice, as Thanksgiving is a form of harvest festival and eating is always nice.

Christmas itself is a holiday with astronomical basis with a rich secular culture even if we omit the religious importance of it, as December 25th roughly marks the day of the Winter Solstice, as it is the moment that occurs each year when the Earth, reach its most northerly or southerly excursion relative to the celestial equator on the celestial sphere.
The Solstice was always celebrated in many forms across various cultures, like the Mayas and Stonehenge was built for it. A system of Solstice holidays with the same cultural icons would be great and scientific, as i consider Jesus a cultural icon.
