hmm... well, I was raised agnostic with a fairly pagan version of Christmas, so I don't take that read on it at all, but that's me.

yeah, I mean, in most instances where you see or hear christmas mentioned, it's for commercial reasons, not reasons having to do with Christianity. And most of the symbols of christmas - the yule log, eggnog, rum toddy, rum pudding, santa claus, christmas trees - have nothing to do with Christianity at all. (viewing Saint Nick as a re-named Odin, anyway.)

My parents' friends, catholics, agnostics, athiests and all, get together for a Christmastime dinner each year and exchange small gifts and mostly appreciation of each other in a cheery atmosphere with good food, which is what Christmas is about for me. So no, it's not about non-christians not counting. Christians may have done a pretty good job of re-naming the yule, but they don't own the holiday, so far as I'm concerned.
