Good Luck.
A new says Christmas in the USA is becoming less religious. Nine out of ten Americans Christmas, but only about think it is a religious holiday. The report is from the Pew Research Center. It asked 2,001 about their on Christmas. Just over half of those questioned thought Christmas was a religious celebration, while 32 per cent said it was, "more of a holiday". Greg Smith from Pew Research said: "Younger are less likely than older adults to see Christmas as a religious than cultural holiday. They're less to say they will attend [church at] Christmas…and they are less likely to believe in the virgin ."

People are also changing what they say to other at Christmas and what they write in . More and more people are choosing to say "Happy Holidays" of "Merry Christmas". This is because there are also non-Christian holidays happening around the same as Christmas. Many people want to include all holidays in their holiday . The research also found that 79 per cent of Americans will watch a Christmas movie, but only 59 per cent will go to . Just 36 per cent will read the Christmas in the Bible. The average amount of people spend on Christmas is $914. Ten per cent of Americans spend $2,000. People most look to spending time with their family.
