By chance, is she a Jehovah's Witness?
They are the only ones I've ever heard of, to take that position.
(Other than Puritans, in the days of Oliver Cromwell.)

Church of Christ (the "non-demoninational" southern type) also do not celebrate, although it is not forbidden as it is to Jehovah's Witnesses. To the Church of Christ, it's just another day of the year as is Easter, as Christ didn't request of his followers that they celebrate either day, just the Sabbath (which they did accept as moved to Sunday, but whatever).

(and yes, it's a pagan holiday...)
