    I love Christmas at my Mom's. It is just a house full of crazy.
    Just curious if you are atheist, agnostic or something else? We don't celebrate religious holidays as religious. For example Halloween is about candy and dressing up - not about All Hallows Eve. And Christmas is about the tree, giving, family, gifts and not about the birth of Christ for us.

    My favorite is Christmas followed closely by Thanksgiving. I used to love Thanksgiving more, but after my mom passed away a week before Thanksgiving almost 12 years ago it's a much sadder holiday for me.

    It's definitely Christmas in this house! I love decorating with DH and the kids. I love the food, the music, and the excitement of the kids! It overall an exciting and loving holiday here.

    Yup! Us too. While You Were Sleeping and The Santa Clause are favorites of mine!

    That's sort of what it's like for us too except I have been known to sing a religious Christmas carol or two. I grew up going to church a bit so they are just part of the tradition for me now.

    I'd have to say Christmas but I love the Thanksgiving to New Year season as a whole.

    I am Christian, but pretty much against mainstream churches. DH does not affiliate with atheism, but is anti-religious (he has long and drawn out speeches about it, and it bores me to listen to it because it's like he is trying to convert me LOL). I am pretty much a follow what feels right to you type of person. When DS (or any of our kids) gets old enough to make a decision about what to believe or to go to church he is free to do so. I let him watch Vegitales (though DH doesn't approve) and I answer his questions about God with what I believe and what DH believes. DH allows gifts on Christmas just because he doesn't want DS to feel left out, BUT we never go all out with gifting and spend large amounts of money, as we are both against the consumerism that has latched on to the day.

    Religious Christmas carols are very pretty. I sing those too.

    I am on a similar page to you - organized religion just doesn't seem right for me. I also agree that if DS or DD or #3 is interested in finding out about church I'll either take them myself or send them with friends who go to different churches. We buy quite a bit of gifts at Christmas because we don't buy any other time of year basically!

    I hope no one is offended by what we are saying. I find many people don't understand and I feel attacked about not going to church sometimes. It doesn't help that I live in an area that is almost exclusively Catholic. I'm a nice person I swear!
