What is the surprise? Christmas is a white man's celebration. It isn't African or Asian. European Christians stole the Jewish / Greek Christ story and made it a winter solstice celebration. They centered the story around the fat white man in the red suit instead of Jesus.

Did the Jews celebrate the mass for Christ in December? I think not. Did the Greeks? Was December on their calends? No.

Where did the Christmas story come from? England? Or was it America?

You expect him maybe to celebrate Kwanzaa? Kwanzaa is a nice idea but hardly an ancient ceremony. It is less credible than Christmas. Kwanzaa started in 1966. A nice collection of ideas but not an ancient tradition.

Would celebrating a Jewish holiday be a sacrilege? Praise to a religion and a god that was not his?
