Someone else has already said that Christianity is the only religion which requires you to believe that Jesus is the way, the truth, and the life to be "saved"; whereas all other religions require good works to enter eternity.
Christianity also teaches that the soul is a "mortal" (created and can be destroyed by God) thing, where most other religions (especially Eastern religions) teach that the soul is inherently immortal!
You'll find all sorts of differences the closer you look. People like your friend are blind because they can't see their own sin of denying the existence of God. Until they do, you just do your best without being combative and always be there for them! Prayer helps!
But note about the Dec. 25th birth date - It wasn't when Jesus was born. That's a whole 'nother thread, but you could point out to your friend that particular date was picked by a certain church system for a very specific reason, and it hasn't been done away with [formally] yet. Same reason the "Sabbath" for most Christians is "Sunday", too. Oh, and "Easter", sadly.
John 10 (KJV)
27 My sheep hear my voice, and I know them, and they follow me:
28 And I give unto them eternal life; and they shall never perish, neither shall any man pluck them out of my hand.
29 My Father, which gave them me, is greater than all; and no man is able to pluck them out of my Father's hand.
