A growing number of Americans say they don't see Christmas as a religious holiday, according to a Pew Research poll released Tuesday.

Eighteen percent of the adults surveyed from November 29 to December 4 say that the decreased emphasis on the religious parts of Christmas bothers them "a lot".
The poll was conducted from November 29 to December 4 among USA adults, according to the Pew report. A Public Policy Polling survey from previous year found that more than 80% of Americans didn't care which one people said. And fewer Americans now say Christian displays should be allowed on government property without representation from other religions.
38 percent of Republicans and 61 percent of Democrats said it does not matter.
Nine out of ten US adults say they celebrate the holiday, which is almost identical to the share who said this in 2013.
Sixty-eight percent say wise men, guided by a star, brought gifts for the infant Jesus, compared to 75 percent in 2014. Many still plan to gather with friends and family on Christmas Eve or Christmas Day (82 percent).

The accounts of Jesus' birth are found in the Gospels of Matthew and Luke, and they differ.
