You said Christmas is cultural. I pointed out the ten commandments are as cultural to some people as Christmas is to some people.
I'm not sure why it's funny for me to call you out for not addressing this argument. It's not like it was a subtle piece of a larger argument - I turned your entire argument about Christmas being cultural against you by pointing out you can say the ten commandments are cultural by using the same logic.
Christmas is cultural. You can (and millions do) celebrate it without religion or god. There are many customs (the tree, lights, gifts, songs) that are completely secular. The same with easter.
I don't know how the ten commandments are comparable. They aren't a holiday, just a list of rules from the bible. You'll have to explain further.
