They don't call us the Left Coast for nuthin' bub....
Maybe because we are a little more multicultural we're more inclusive....
Merry Christmas, Joyous Yule (two nights ago), have a really Kwazy Kwanzaa, and for anyone in the islands who might be tuned in... Mele Kalikimaka.
Add the Jewish celebration of Hannukah,
the Amaterasu celebration in Japan,
Diwali in India,
the DōngZhě Festival in China
Tōji Festival in Vietnam and other parts of East Asia
Deuorius Riuri in ancient Gaul,
the Zoroastrians' celebration of Deygān,
Beiwe Festival in Scandinavia,
and many others....

They're all about keeping away the darkness, or celebrating the return of the light, either literally or figuratively.
As the Rev. Gary Davis used to sing,
Keep Your Lamps Trimmed and Burnin'...
