First off, Why would you not celebrate those sacred times if you say your a Christian????
If you say your a Christian but will not celebrate the birth and resurrection of the Savior, Then what makes you a Christian? To believe? Believing alone is not enough. Even Lucifer himself believes there is a Lord God. How you live and interact with Christ and your fellow humans is more of the measurement of what you are. If you've walked away for your Christianity for whatever reason, or have not asked him in to your heart. He will be waiting for you with open arms. Ask and you shall receive.
I don't think you need a poll to tell you what you already know in your own heart.

Here's a poll for ya'....
Do you know the reason??
Christmas and Easter = hostile takeover of perfectly good pagan holidays.
The symbols and rituals surrounding each holiday were barely even changed, mostly just dropped/modified the really fun parts...
Virtually all of the symbolism and tradition of "Christmas" come directly from pagan holidays that had already been going on at that time of year for centuries. Almost nothing about it has anything to do with Christ's birth, not even the time of year the holiday is celebrated.
In the almost 1800 years since it became a "Christian" holiday, even more traditions with various pagan roots have been added from various cultures.
The holiday now known as Easter was pagan many centuries before there was a such thing as a Christian. Some of the fertility symbols are still associated with the holiday.
We all know what activity rabbits are known for.

If more government is the answer, then it's a really stupid question.
The dates of these holidays are somewhat controversial. Some Biblical scholars claim the actual birth of Jesus is sometime in the summer. Even the date of Easter is being debated.
To me the actual date is not so important. I celebrate the event, not necessarily he day.
Unfortunetly Christmas has turned into how much can I afford to spend day and has lost it's meaning to a vast majority they only seem to remember the gifts the wise man brought instead of the meaning behind them. Easter has turned into a ??egg hunt?? and candy central. My family celebrates these events making sure that the real meaning is remembered and understood. During Christmas we sit around as a whole family and the grandparents (formerly parents I only have one left this year) and talk about God and what he means and how much he gave for us.
