A nice holiday where Christians dont push their religion on people, and people aren't consumer whores...

Just realize that the first part is open to interpretation, and, without it, it makes the second one almost inevitable (not too many secular American holidays that I'm aware of that don't have some significant element of consumerism attached, except maybe Veterans Day). Granted, more and more religious holidays also have the rampant consumerism to match, and the ones that don't are largely either protected by another major holiday in close proximity (Good Friday and All Saint's Day in the Christian tradition, Passover in the Jewish one) or because most people don't know when they occur, let alone anything about them (most major Jewish holidays, Pentecost and Epiphany in Christianity, Reformation Sunday in Lutheran and other Protestant Christian churches, and Eid al-Fitr in the Muslim community).

I'll save my actual Christmas wish until later, as right now I'd be too tempted to make some sort of snarky reply.

You could always just abolish holidays as a whole (It's not prejudice because everyone loses their holidays!) and whoo!

I want some things not only for christmas... but for this christmas i'd like to have a good time with friends and family.

BTW, i still wear t-shirts... it's quite hot here of what it used to be. Some years ago the 1st of November we were all wearing heavy wear and it was quite cold, but now it's still quite hot.
