Go. There is no reason you can't celebrate Christmas. Ask yourself this is Christ or the idea of Christ unworthy of a celebration? Have dinner with you family to celebrate and honor your family.

Or spring equinox for that mater. Dose it really mater? I have been Wicca for over 17 years now and my family is Catholic for the most part. I celebrate Christmas with them. I also honor Christ as a wise teacher and bringer of peace. Three days prier I have a Yule celebration. Just because we are not Christians doesn't mean we can't celebrate this day with our none Pagan friends and family.

I personally think that Jesus was a great teacher, and definately a figure that deserves to be honor. I may not be Christian, but I can still honor Jesus of Nazareth. Besides, there's always Yule.

South of the Equator, the seasons are reversed. So what are Winter holidays for us, are Summer holidays for those Down Under, and vice versa.

I celebrate Christmas in a pagan way, decorate my tree and home with pine cones and ribbon.
Lots of candles and home cooked food.
I like turkey dinner and all the nice trimmings.

Good morning Bluedew!

I love baking a Yule Log for the holiday and my husband loves it. We don't put a tree up because our dog will pull it down. She chases the relections from the ornaments. I do decorate with garland and ribbons too. Love candles.

Good morning Earth Child.

I enjoy all the Holidays. I just celebrate them in my own way.

As most of my family has since passed away, I don't have to answer to anybody or explain myself.

Most christian holidays derived from pagan days anyway.

The darling christians just changed the names.

I read a lot of books to gain insite, get help and
ideas.

I think when we put our own personal touch into a holidsay it makes it special along with the holiday meaning.

You revived a THREE YEAR old thread just to be a spelling nazi? How rude. I'll take misspellings over rudeness any day.

Being new here, I'm in no position to judge anothers spelling or any other grammatical error.

I was enjoying how others celebrate the holidays.
Nice to get fresh ideas from others.

If grammar and spelling are the only things that frost your cookie, then life must be pretty damn good for you.

Good morning Bluedew!
It amazes me how people react to such minor insignificant issues instead of focusing on the intent of the post. There are bigger things in life to worry about than spelling.
