Christmas
 
Does anyone here do christmas?


We do, but totally traditional/cultural american christmas. Nothing religious at all.

We don't.
Our families do though.
So my kids get gifts and stuff.

But since DH have time off, we spend lots of family time and we spoil the kids a little bit :P
It's almost like they have xmas present, but we do this every time we have family time so... ;)

This will be our first christmas as a family, and we will be celebrating with extended family, putting up a tree, exchanging gifts. It's really not any different than what I did growing up in a religious family, we just won't be putting up a nativity scene or going to church. These days, it's pretty darn easy to take the "christ" out of christmas.

We do but nit in any religious sense even as a kid there was no religion for us...we do the tree and presents and have dinner with family etc...

We do but it's not religious in any way. It's pretty exactly how we did xmas when I was child: tree, decorations and lights on the house, cookies for Santa, presents...My son is still too young to get any of it but I still do it because I love it.

My five year old doesn't know the Jesus/Mary story yet but we do trees, ornaments, gifts, carols, all that good ol' USA stuff. Religion just hasn't come up yet, so I must be doing something right. I'd like to do Bible as Literature someday but my older kids had some pretty bad experiences so I'm kind of overprotective of the little and give simple explanations like, "Oh, that's a club that X's family belongs to and they like to do things with other people who belong to the same club. Let's see if Y can come play instead."
