Which bits of Christmas / Yule / Festive season
 
do you count as spiritual, and which do you count as commercial?

Presents are obviously commercial I guess, and attending a service or saying prayers is also obviously spiritual.

What about the grey areas? Having a tree and putting up decorations? Having a feast and/or eating treats? Sending cards?

Re: Which bits of Christmas / Yule / Festive season
 
From what I've read online, gift giving has been part of the Yule/Festive celebrations for ions. It's only recently that man-kind has turned it into a commercial, money spending, disgusting trend. It's not about the thought anymore, but how much you spent. It makes me so sad.

I want to try and keep it all spiritual. There's a lot of thought that goes into my gifts, and while I sometimes can't help but to go a bit over board with Nevaeh, I still prefer to give much more than receive.

The feasting is spiritual for me. It's all about the love and bringing the family together :wub:

The tree is spiritual for me as well. It bring back SO many memories and the roots behind the tree means a lot to me :)
