I am not Christian so I made a choice to stop celebrating Christian holidays ( that my parents would make me participate, even though I told them I didnt want to every single year... but I digress ).
I am proud now that since my 17 yrs of age. I do not celebrate Christian Holidays ( or any other religious holidays ). I instead, created my own holidays to celebrate, wich are, all major events in my life and their days of happening. I prefer it that way. None of those celebrations are about buying although my wife and I often end up full and tipsy haha.
That is impressive of you actually.
I'm Christian, and I kinda wish most of the Christian holidays, actually WERE Christian entirely. Christmas, for all the hoopla, isn't really a Christian event. Oh, we tell ourselves it is. Jesus wasn't born in December, the tree isn't a Christian icon, the date chosen is really just a stolen pagan event. Mistletoe is not Christian. In fact, the entire event is barely Christian. Comically, the only portion of Christmas that's actually accurate is St Nickolas and were tell children when they get older, he doesn't exist. Actually, he did/does.
I do wish it was more about just meeting with family and not a commercial spectacle though. But thanks to the internet and Amazon, even Black Friday no longer matters. People shop for bargains all year round now. My main spending moment these days (for frivolous things that is), is the 29/30th of the month (when I can safely spend any residual knowing I will have fresh funds the next day). The tricky part is having 'residual' funds :)
