The Xmas Thread: Discussions on secular/pagan practices

This thread is for the discussion of secular/pagan Xmas problems and thoughts. I used Xmas to differentiate this thread form the Christmas thread. To discuss the birth of Jesus please use the Christmas Thread.

Go with the Flow...

I must commend you! First because above all, you celebrate the birth of Christ and second, because you have consideration for the feelings of your guests. That is kind and Christian.

There have been a couple of years I also did not put up a tree but instead had a large nativity placed where the tree would go. Decorate all around it to give it a winter scene and place lights in the right spots and then bring the baby out on Christmas day.

I really enjoyed that quite a bit. Will probably do it again this year.

Well, just wanted to say that... now can you imagine if grandpa were Jewish?? Oy vey... hope I said that right. :)
