First & foremost, our Christmas celebration revolves around the birth of Jesus. Secondly, is kids. My hubby & I usually only get each other 1 or 2 gifts & the rest are for the kids. We get much more joy out of seeing them happy& enjoying themselves.

I am Jewish and my wife converted (not for me, but for herself. She had been planning on doing it before we even met). Her family celebrates Christmas so we celebrate with them. They do not do it for any religious reasons at all. It is just a reason to get family together and have a good time and good food (like we need an excuse for that LOL).

The birth of Christ and a celebration of that with family and friends.

Six years ago, when the kid just turned 7 and Christmas followed, I realized he had Jesus and Santa Clause on equal footing. I decided we had to join and church and put him in Sunday School to give him a foundation - if for no other reason than to have something to rebel against. How can he make decisions without background and information? He has to know if and why he wants to leave how we're raising him.

Christmas is the celebration of the birth of Jesus Christ, our lord and savior. And has absolutely nothing to do with getting presents.
