I will let you make up your own mind on that issue after reading the Scripture, however, I will say that if there is any doubt in your mind at all in regard to weather you celebrate pagan holy days and taking part in pagan rituals could possibly offend the One who created you then I would stop observing all of the pagan holy days not now but yesterday.
take heed to yourself that you be not ensnared to follow them, after that they are destroyed from before you; and that you inquire not after their gods, saying: 'How used these nations to serve their gods? even so will I do likewise. You shall not do so unto YHWH your Elohim; for every abomination to YHWH, which He hates, have they done unto their gods; for even their sons and their daughters do they burn in the fire to their gods. (HRV Deuteronomy 12:30-31)
guard yourself that you are not ensnared to follow them, after they are destroyed before you, and that you do not inquire about their mighty ones, saying, 'How did these nations serve their mighty ones? And let me do so too.' "Do not do so to YaHuWaH your Elohim, for every abomination which YaHuWaH hates they have done to their mighty ones, for they even burn their sons and daughters in the fire to their mighty ones. (ISR Debarim 12:30-31)
Now let us reading a passage from the Ketuvim Netzarim (Writings of the Nazarenes).
You are not able to drink the cup of our Adon and the cup of shadim; and you are not able to partak with the table of our Adon and with the table of shadim. (HRV 1 Corinthians 10:21)
You are not able to drink the cup of the Master and the cup of demons, you are not able to partake of the table of the Master and of the table of demons. (ISR 1 Corinthians 10:21)
And again more insight from the Ketuvim Netzarim (Writings of the Nazarenes).
And do not fellowship with the works of darkness, in which there is no fruit, but reprove them. (HRV Ephesians 5:11)
And have no fellowship with the fruitless works of darkness, but rather reprove them. (ISR Ephesians 5:11)
Would the Messiah take part in these pagan holy days? I know that He would not; and being as he was a perfect example of how we ought to live our lives we also should not take part in these pagan holy days. As Scripture says, we ought to walk just as He walked.
