I'm certainly not a christian or religious in any way, shape or form but I don't really see a problem with labelling the period from approx 20 Dec - 03 Jan as 'christmas'. Yeah I understand where the word comes from, but like a lot of other old traditions, who cares now? Use the word and just adapt it to what you see fit. Cultures steal words from other cultures all the time, you don't have to take all the trappings that go with it.

Either way, hopefully everyone enjoys themselves over the next few days and stays safe
I usually don't mind when people say Merry Christmas, but I would get a bit annoyed if I was in some place that emphasizes equality and there were signs everywhere saying Merry Christmas.
