If YOUR conscience tells you that it's wrong to celebrate Christmas because it's a pagan holiday, then it's a sin for YOU to celebrate Christmas.

Celebrating Christmas is not a sin. Celebrating something that goes against your conscience, is a sin. But you may also come to understand Christmas is simply a day to celebrate the birth of Christ, which would give you a clear conscience, to celebrate.
1 Corinthians 1:9
9 God is faithful, through whom you were called into fellowship with His Son, Jesus Christ our Lord.

People need to stop with the whole Christmas and Easter are pagan crap.
It's been shown over and over that is not the case.
Co-relation does NOT equal causation.

Besides, through out all of history, bible and otherwise, cultures borrow off other cultures things they like.
Engagement rings, honeymoons, water purification rituals, kinky dress ups.

She states Jesus didn't say to celebrate his birthday or resurrection. I mean Easter is also an important holiday.

Jesus also did NOT state:

Celebrate weddings ( but he did)
Celebrate anniversaries.
Change underwear.
Bathe.
Go to the doctor when sick.
Have kids or don't have kids.
He didn't comment on A LOT of things that, well, He didn't comment on.

The thing is that He DID make mention of many things NOT to do and IF celebrating His birth or Resurrection were NOT allowed, He or His apostles would have said so.
Did they?

The only apostle to comment on "special days' was Paul and what did he say?

The only way it could be wrong to celebrate Christmas or Easter is if you were a pagan actually carrying out these pagan holiday rituals with intent and I don't know of any Christian who does.We celebrate Christ's birthday and his Resurrection and the pagan aspect is just for kids to have fun and they are not pagans.They do not even know about or understand the pagan aspect so it is not wrong at all.
Hebrews 12:2-3 Looking unto Jesus the author and finisher of our faith;who for the joy that was set before him endured the cross,despising the shame,and is set down at the right hand of the throne of God.

2nd Corinthians 4:4 In whom the god of this world hath blinded the minds of them which believe not,lest the light of this glorious gospel of Christ,who is the image of God,should shine unto them.
