I understand about the acquisition of some pagan holidays after the conversion of Constantine. My faith in Jesus Christ is not based on my feelings about Christmas and Easter. I do know that Jesus Christ was born on earth, was crucified and rose three days afterward. I have no particular feelings about a specific day.
Regarding Mal 1:11 - people are certainly free to believe what they want, thanks to our fighting men and women and our constitution. In reading verse 1 of Malachi 1, the audience is Israel, which was practicing Judaism.
I don't really want to get into a religious argument. My salvation through Jesus Christ is very real experience. There's an old saying - A man with an argument is always at the mercy of a man with an experience.
I respect anyone's right to practice their beliefs. Not withstanding, I hold fast to my faith as a Christian and would encourage anyone to read John 14:6 where Jesus says, I am the Way, the Truth, and the Life - no one comes to the Father but by me.
Again, I respect everyone's right to their own beliefs. In America, we owe thanks for that right to those who held to Judeo-Christian beliefs and founded this country.
