Thread Name: BS: How do u celebrate midwinter godlessly?
Subject: RE: BS: How do u celebrate midwinter godlessly?
I consider myself agnostic but I celebrate christmas with my immediate family. We buy only for the kids, something that started 5 or so years ago because it just got out of hand when you're talking about having 30 people on your shopping list. The family gathers at my sister Debra's house and shares the traditional meal. My aunt will call from Arizona and we'll pass the phone around the house so everyone gets to wish them a merry christmas...sometimes my uncle and his wife show up for dessert...this year will be a little strange as this is the first christmas since my mother died and said aunt and uncle are her younger siblings, but I'm sure it will be fine. I'll hang around and help my sister and brother-in-law clean up and then go home to the cats with a little turkey treat for them.
