Avoiding Non Islamic Festivals

​Does Muslim has any affair in Festival or Celebration or Ceremony other than Islam ?
All Glories are only for ALLAAH
1.) Surah Al-Hajj, Verse 34:

وَلِكُلِّ أُمَّةٍ جَعَلْنَا مَنسَكًا …
And for every nation We have appointed religious ceremonies,…

(English – Mohsin Khan)
The one of Best ceremonies which ALLAAH has appointed for this nation is
 Surah As-Saaffat, Verse 107:

وَفَدَيْنَاهُ بِذِبْحٍ عَظِيمٍ
And We ransomed him (ibrahim) with a momentous sacrifice:

(English – Yusuf Ali)
2.) These two festivals are enough for Muslims
Anas narrated: “When the Messenger of Allah (peace be upon him) came to Al-Madinah, its (inhabitants) had two days they would play in (and be merry on). He asked them: ‘What are these two days?’ They replied: ‘We used to play on these days during Jahiliyyah.’ So the Messenger of Allah replied: ‘Indeed, Allah has replaced you with two days that are better than them: THE DAY OF AL-ADHA, AND THE DAY OF AL-FITR
Abu Dawood 1134

An Nasa’i 1557

Ahmad 250/3
3.) But, what if someone celebrates festivals other than Islamic 
(a) Surah Aal-e-Imran, Verse 28:

لَّا يَتَّخِذِ الْمُؤْمِنُونَ الْكَافِرِينَ أَوْلِيَاءَ مِن دُونِ الْمُؤْمِنِينَ وَمَن يَفْعَلْ ذَٰلِكَ فَلَيْسَ مِنَ اللَّهِ فِي شَيْءٍ إِلَّا أَن تَتَّقُوا مِنْهُمْ تُقَاةً وَيُحَذِّرُكُمُ اللَّهُ نَفْسَهُ وَإِلَى اللَّهِ الْمَصِيرُ
Let not the believers take the disbelievers(idol worshippers) as Auliya (friends, protectors, etc.) instead of the believers, and whoever does that will never be helped by Allah in any way, except if you indeed fear a danger from them. And Allah warns you against Himself (His Punishment), and to Allah is the final return.

(English – Mohsin Khan)

(b)Surah Al-Maeda, Verse 51:

يَا أَيُّهَا الَّذِينَ آمَنُوا لَا تَتَّخِذُوا الْيَهُودَ وَالنَّصَارَىٰ أَوْلِيَاءَ بَعْضُهُمْ أَوْلِيَاءُ بَعْضٍ وَمَن يَتَوَلَّهُم مِّنكُمْ فَإِنَّهُ مِنْهُمْ إِنَّ اللَّهَ لَا يَهْدِي الْقَوْمَ الظَّالِمِينَ
O you who believe! … And if any amongst you takes them as Auliya'(friends, protectors) , then surely he is one of them. Verily, Allah guides not those people who are the Zalimun (polytheists and wrong-doers and unjust).

(English – Mohsin Khan)
via iQuran
(c)It was narrated that Ibn ‘Umar said: “The Messenger of Allaah (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) said: ‘Whoever imitates a people is one of them.”

 

Narrated by Abu Dawood, al-Libaas, 3512. Al-Albaani said in Saheeh Abi Dawood, (it is) hasan saheeh. No. 3401). 
4.) So greeting, participating in their festivals, honoring their rituals is Disbelief in ALLAAH and His Messenger and it is highly prohibited
