Apparently so.<quoted text>
Sassy is getting hung up on the "they make up their own minds" part.
She'd really have a fit at my house, then, where in addition to Yule and Ostara, we would celebrate Christmas and Easter with my parents who would come to visit. My Dad still comes down every December, celebrates Yule with us (he doesn't stay up all night for the vigil, but he gets up to go with us to the beach and watch the sun rise), and then we celebrate on the 25th with him. Of course, it helps that the decorations are pretty much the same for both. After all, the church incorporated many of the symbols and colors the Pagans already used in order to make them more willing to "convert" :)
And not once have the kids ever been "confused" by this. No more than they were "confused" about Santa (that jolly old Elf), the Easter Bunny (bunnies being one symbol of the Goddess Eostre :), the Tooth Fairy. They were told what we believe, and what other religions believe, and they were told that what they believed would always be up to them to decide. I guess one reason it's so hard for Sassy to understand, is that her religion teaches absolutes, while others may teach that there are many ways to see the Divine, and they don't understand that myths were created as tools to teach underlying concepts, and are not meant to be taken literally.
