So what the Bible doesn't say is more important than what it does say?
I celebrate Christmas and am a believer, but I also realize that a parade is a secular activity paid for by tax money. This fact requires that it be inclusive towards all taxpayers, hence the holiday name. Have a Christmas celebration at Church. After all, the government can't get most things right, do you want them getting involved in your religion as well?

I never said that. All I was implying was that we shouldn't condemn certain activities simply because they are not mentioned in the Bible.

I am in agreement with you in that I don't want the government involved in my religion.
