This is so far off topic - that I'm not ashamed of chipping in. ;)

The keyword was secular. A lot of Europeans belong to churches because it was mandatory to belong to a church up until some 50 years ago in some countries here. Sweden, where I live, is among them. Guess what? We're the most secular country in the world now (or in the top 3 at least) - but still most people belong to a congregation, since their folks did. Up until 7 years ago the church was a part of the state here, the priests where government officials.
Anyway, what does being Christian have to do with the worlds biggest commercial holiday?
