In all religions, birthdays of great personalities are celebrated, but the ideals for which they lived are not remembered and followed. If you do not care to follow their teachings, the celebrations lose their meaning and become artificial observances; it is not doing justice to the great men whose birthdays you celebrate. Jesus taught people to love all beings and serve all with compassion. It is only by practicing these ideals that you can truly celebrate his birthday. You must live in love and lead a life of selfless service based on love. This is the only right way of celebrating the birth of Jesus.
