For the two Xmas's we have been 'out', Wifey and I have celebrated Christmas quietly with the grandkids and a few family. Although we have had a tree - somewhat hidden from view inside - we have not ever put a light or decoration outside. This week I proposed to Wifey that I light the large conifer in the back yard this season. She replied "Well, that should get ya' disfellowshipped" My reply - 'To hell with 'em [or essence], I could care less'.
So I think I have made my decision - and that is a momentous one for me - to get out of the 'Christmas closet' and openly declare my apostate love of the X-mas colors.
I know this thread is an early one on Xmas - but I just thought I should ask my fellow apostates to chime in. [And bring gifts for the tree LOL]
