What If? No Easter? No Christmas?

If Judas decided otherwise, if the Messiah never showed, would that have made things any different? Since we are born in sin, this means in everyday understanding that we all genetically inherited something not of our fault. Is there not our Higher Power's caring without threat of eternal suffering(i.e. "God loves you so he does not want to put you in hell." is the typical mandate of too many teachers. Are we not all good people who sometimes do bad things than bad people who sometimes do good things? Are we not taught to seek communion with a Higher Power?
I can see why some sects do not believe in recognizing Christmas or even giving their diety a name. That's trying to force others to conform to someone elses boxed-in and limited understanding of their Higher Power rather than be in touch with their own personal understanding.
Not to lean on every phrase of written teachings, quoting scripture every other sentence to make a point. When you go outside and look at the billow cumulus, do you not see Easter every day? Christmas every day?
