    Best answer: Kind-of yes, but understanding is important.

    The Christmas celebration has both religious and secular elements to it. The US Courts, in examining the traditions which are mostly of pagan origin sees Jesus scenes such as Nativity as religious, and of course Christmas Mass, but most other celebration is secular in nature and origins.
    Even examining the name "Jesus Christ", the name being an English translation of old Greek for who was termed actually Yeshua of Nazareth the Christ, where Yeshua in Hebrew is a verbal derivative from "to rescue", "to deliver" as highly improbable as the person's name, is more of a moniker, just as Christ is a term for a person that speaks with God and was a designation on various people at the time also. Analysis of the Bible indicates he was born in the Spring or Fall, depending upon who does the analysis, and December 25th was used to coincide with Saturnalia, an ancient Roman festival in honor of the god Saturn, held on 17 December of the Julian calendar and later expanded with festivities through to 23 December.
    The decorated greenery brought inside is of northern climate origins well before the birth of Christianity.

    Anyway, one survey showed that a higher percentage of atheists celebrate the secular traditions of Christmas than Christians actually attend Mass in Western countries. Jewish is both a religion and a heritage/ethnicity and the number of Jews around the world is a very small percentage of the overall world population, and Reformed is more of a Western sub-branch of Judaism with Conservative, Orthodox, and Hasidic being a part of Orthodox. Reformed holds the least religious aspects, but still celebrates Hanukah (or Chanukah).

    So, Reform Jews, and Jewish agnostics and atheists do celebrate both holidays, but the extent and religious aspects will vary, where Reform Jews do not recognize the Christian religious parts of Christmas except a small sector of a group called Jews For Jesus that had a bit of popularity as I remember the 1960's and 70's when a lot of little sects popped out of many religions and you could find Hari Krishna people outside of airport terminals and a variety of door-to-door Mormons.

    Christmas decorations are becoming more popular in major cities in China, but most don't even realize it is associated with a religion in particular. They like the pretty lights.
