If only 2% of people or something in Japan are Christians, why do so many anime have a Christmas episode?

Globalization exported the current hegemon's largest consumer festival, the rites of which were adopted and modified by the local culture.

They celebrate it in a completely secular way.

Actually so do most Americans.

This. No one really cares about the holiday's religious background.

Christmas has become a commercial holiday. Do you think everyone in America that celebrates christmas or exchanges gifts are all christian?

>>135035541
No one gives a shit about the religion.

Because nobody cares if it's the birthday of Jesus, people just like meeting up and receiving gifts.
Also I think that for japs christmas is more akin to Saint Valentine.

No one treats Christmas like a religious holiday in Japan.

Also iirc it's like their Valentines Day.

Why not

No not really I'm not fully Christian either. I totally believe in the possibility of a God and practice some Christian beliefs but I'm not blindly following.

>>135035653
Which makes removing Christmas from public areas for the sake of inclusivity all the more fucked

Like those european countries that ban their own flag for fear of making immigrants uncomfortable

Jesus wasn't born anywhere near December to begin with. When Caesar Augustus converted from paganism to Christianity, Christmas was moved to December the 25th to make for an easy transition for the Roman empire as that date closely coincides with the pagan celebration of the winter solstice.

That said, don't ever get a degree in theology if you ever want to be financially independent. Trust me on this one, /a/.
