Actually in DS9, they celebrated a Bajor festival called Peldor Festival around December (Tears of the Prophets) so I suspect they celebrated Christmas

Well, since the idea of god seemed to be a familiar one in several episodes, not to mention ST:TMP and ST5, I'd say it will pretty much be the same. Star Trek tends to abandon Earth customs and show alien ones, but it would be logical to presume that some form of december holiday and the new year will still be recognized.

Celebrating Christmas and New Years is part of being human(no matter what point it'll be our future). I believe that as we venture more and more towards the blackness void of space(further and further away from Earth)the more we tend to hang on to our humanity, that which seperates and distinguishes us from the rest of the other santient species out there in the cosmos. ;)

Of course, Among humans Christmas was still the most celebrated holiday in fact it was so popular that some of the other federation races started celebrating it...BTW Happy Holidays everyone!!!:)

a celebration day where people dont have to work will never be given up. but, on the other hand, a federation of planets will have so many "special" days to celebrate, the will hardly find time to work at all.

 #9 - Picard had a Christmas moment in Generations. - Posted by: PreciousRoy (Member) on 12-31-2008 at 14:54

In the time ribbon thingy in Star Trek: Generations, Picard had a Christmas moment with an imagined wife and children, which I suppose is validation that Christmas lives in the 25th Century.

I think that these holidays will probably be celebrated in the future, but it will probably not be celebrated as widely, or as much as it is now. With time, humans will begin to dispense with old traditions and make new ones. The Christmas holiday has changed traditions and rituals a lot in the last 1,000 years, and that will probably hold true 400 years from now as well. The Christmas Tree may be replaced by a "Christmas Log" or something. Who knows?:D
