I am interested in learning "HOW" Christians don't celebrate Christmas. If you observe Christmas in your home or with family/friends, please refrain from responding to this thread. In this thread, I am NOT concerned with "why" Christians should or should not celebrate Christmas. I am concerned with what NOT OBSERVING looks like because it has been such a sore spot for our family... DISCLAIMER: I am ONLY interested in hearing from those who don't observe Christmas and/or those who used to observe this Holy Day but are slowly separating themselves from the observance of Christmas in their homes etc. We have been on both ends of spectrum (and everywhere in between). I think this makes it harder for us. We used to do the whole shebang... Lights, Trees, Nativity, Cards, Gifts, Carols, Happy Birthday Jesus, you-name-it! Now, we are opposed to celebrating it all together. We are not opposed to spending time with family and have made sure that they know they are welcome to visit on or around December 25th BUT we will not be going to anyone's homes etc. Because, we are tired of being inconsistent. The last few years we have NOT celebrated it at home but then we've turned around and have gone to the family gatherings and hence celebrated it even though we are opposed to it. We want to honor Christ & it is difficult when we teach our children one thing yet do the exact opposite. If you celebrated Christmas at one point but NO LONGER DO (out of a love for God & His worship etc.), what was the transition like for you & your family? Are you able to NOT celebrate Christmas or do you find yourself bending? Any advice for those in transition that are finding themselves struggling at this time of year (year after year)?
