Does YHWH like our X-mess songs and holiday celebrations?

Exodus 32:3 And all the people brake off the golden earrings which were in their ears, and brought them unto Aaron.4 And he received them at their hand, and fashioned it with a graving tool, after he had made it a molten calf: and they said, THESE BE THY GODS, O Israel, which brought thee up out of the land of Egypt. 5 And when Aaron saw it, he built an altar before it; and Aaron made proclamation, and said, To morrow is a FEAST TO THE LORD (YHWH).

NOTE: They said that they were worshiping “the LORD” (YHWH) AS the golden calf and having a feast UNTO HIM. That was what was “in their hearts” – it’s what it “meant to them.” With this in mind, when it comes to our so-called “holiday songs” being attached to the profane paganism of X-mess, consider what YHWH had to say through the prophet Amos:

Amos 5:21 I HATE, I DESPISE YOUR feasts, and I take no delight in YOUR solemn assemblies.22 Even though you offer me your burnt offerings and grain offerings, I WILL NOT ACCEPT THEM; and the peace offerings of your fattened animals, I will not look upon them. 23 Take away from me the noise of YOUR SONGS; to the melody of your harps I WILL NOT LISTEN.”

YHWH seems pretty set against OUR feasts and false worship. He is a holy and jealous God. We cannot mix the profane with the holy and expect to please Him.
