We dont celebrate Christmas  just another ordinary day.   As a kid I used to like Christmas because I went to a primary school with a lot of heavy christian influence   but when I became a teenager I stopped

December is a shaheedi month and nothing should be celebrated      my birthday is in december and I dont celebrate it    I'm not a birthday person anyway   I find all that stuff really cringe

My birthday is also on December and is also near Christmas day. Christmas tends to over shadow my birthday. Which I don't like. I would rather have a march birthday or something like may or . It's feels strange having a December birthday. Does not feel special.

In many ways Christmas is like Halloween, a seasonal festival actually started by the pagans. 
Jesus was born in summer apparently.

Not justifying celebrating it, just saying it’s not really a religious festival. I’d say celebrating Diwali is just as bad. Sikhs call it bandhi chor just as an excuse to celebrate Diwali. 
Most sikhs go crazy over bandhi chor, with loads of fireworks but don’t do anything for guru nanak dev jis janam din

Nothing should be celebrated in December? What on earth are you talking about? There is a Shaheedi divas on every day of the calendar year (Bhai Mati Das Bhai Sati Das, 5th and 9th Guru Sahibs, Bhai Taru Singh, Baba Deep Singh, 1984, Saka Nankana, Banda Singh Bahadur, the list goes on and on) Are you seriously saying that at any time a Sikh was Shaheed, people can't celebrate anything, even if it happened over 300 years ago? That doesn't make any sense, and is actually the exact opposite of Chardi Kala. Think about it.

Neither does chardikala mean to celebrate.  So think about it.

No nothing should be celebrated in december    neither did Sikhs celebrate anything in december    its only in the last few decades with nri sikhs returning in december during christmas holidays that people have started doing weddings etc in december again. 

In some of the pinds around sirhind people still dont do anything celebrations in december

Personally for me it just dont feel right doing bhangra and having weddings around the date that the shaheedi happened.

Yeah, exactly what I was going to say.

The shaheedi of the younger Sahibzaadas is special because they were just small children.

I've seen Sikhs who have a huge problem celebrating a cultural day like Rakhri because they say it is a Hindu holiday or even make a fuss over calling Diwali as "Diwali" instead of Bandi chod Divas but have no problem celebrating Christmas with their whole family.

So, if your child had a birthday in December, you would not allow them to celebrate it? "Sorry kid, no Happy birthday for you because 300 years ago..." 

Really? I wonder what kind of psychological effect it would have on a child, and how it would affect their Sikhi in the future? Subconscious animosity perhaps? In Saka Nankana children were thrown into fires, so does that mean nothing can be celebrated in February?  June 1984 attack... No June birthdays for children?  I understand respect for Shaheeds, but who is making these rules? Why does it not apply to the other months?  What about when Sri Guru Gobind Singh Ji's Gurpurab falls in December instead of January for certain years?
