My family and I call it Christmas but it's really more of a "family get-together year-end celebration", or Yulefest. We do like to light a yule log, but almost none of us are religious and those who are are of various religions so... we just keep all of them out of it.
Christmas to celebrate Jesus's birthday and to to celebrate big with my closest and dearest children of God. We all all Gods children. For me it is an expression of love to Jesus to to celebrate big for him. I don't do lavish gifts, but I am giving., I do it for others, but mainly for him. All my efforts are for him, I just invite my loved ones to celebrate the love I have for Jesus with them and that shows how much I love them as well to share this very loving important occasion with them.
I think it's pretty well accepted by religion experts that Jesus was not born in December. I don't think it matters when he was born, though; only that we celebrate Him. It also is not important whether we count Saturday or Sunday as the Sabbath. What matters is taking a day to celebrate our Lord.
We are celebrating Christmas.
Since my boss is Jewish, I also give lip-service to Hanukkah.

My family celebrates Christmas, but more now the announcement to Mary that the Holy Spirit would over-shadow her and she would immaculately conceive. The bible seems to indicate that Jesus was born closer to the Feast of Trumpets than to the winter solstace.
