December is the month people celebrate Christmas.

That is true. However, it is hardly the only holiday of the month. 

So, how many other holidays occur in December? It is quite the busy month. Which is why many people use the term Season's Greeting. They are being courteous by not assuming a person is a Christian. 

Day - Event

5 - Ashura (Islamic, Muslim)
6 - St. Nicholas Day (International)
8 - Bodhi Day - Buddha's Enlightenment (Buddhist)
8-16 - Hanukkah* (Jewish)
12 - Virgin of Guadalupe (Mexico)
13 - Santa Lucia Day (Sweden)
16-25 - Las Posadas (Mexico)
25 - Christmas (Christian, Roman Catholic, International)
26 - Boxing Day (Canada, United Kingdom)
26 - Kwanzaa (African-American)
As well the Winter Solstice. 

A QUESTION for those who insist that Christmas is something that all true Christians should observe:

WHERE in your Bible do you find authority for establishing this alleged religious observance? This question is for those conservative, evangelical Christians who claim to rely solely upon the Bible for guidance and authority in spiritual matters.

In posing this question, This question is NOT to be interpreted as objecting to "Christmas" as having been derived from some alleged pagan observance. I am simply asking, "WHERE is your SCRIPTURAL authority for recognizing a specific day as a day of annual observance in regard to the birth of Jesus Christ? Book, chapter, and verse, please.
