Hanukkah and Yule are not Xmas, so they can't be celebrated "for Xmas". Christ is celebrated with Christmas, the Solstice is celebrated with Yule, and Hanukkah is a holiday "commemorating the rededication of the Holy Temple (the Second Temple) in Jerusalem at the time of the Maccabean Revolt of the 2nd century BCE" according to Wikipedia.

You can't celebrate Yule or Hanukkah 'for x-mas' as they're different holidays. But at the winter holidays I celebrate both Yule and Christmas. Primarily Yule. Christmas only for purely secular reasons.

I don't understand your question. What religion do you celebrate for christmas? Yule and Hanukkah are entirely different celebrations for very different practices. People do not celebrate Hanukkah for Christmas. They celebrate Hanukkah.

I guess I'm agnostic but celebrate Christian holidays, but more for the popularized reasons (Santa, Easter Bunny).

Then I leave it up until April or May and I am considered crazy.
