Do you feel Christians should not "do" Christmas traditions because they were adapted/stolen from other religious festivals?...

I know your frustration. In the churchs I attended growing up the WORD was taught but nothing was given to explain the whys and hows of it or why that WORD was the real word vs other possibilities. It wasn't until I started studying the history of the Christian churchand the history of the Bible that I started to understand the whys and hows of everything. One good place to start is the book Misquoting Jesus by Bart D. Ehrman. It tells of how the bible came to be what it currently is today and the history of how it got made. I tended to take the WORD a lot less literaly after reading that book. You may also want to try a Unitarian Universalist Church, they are open to all religons not just non denominational Christian and incorporates many different views. It may help you find what you are looking for or maybe what direction to go looking. Good Luck!
