Do you celebrate Christmas?

    Yup! Been out for 10 years and have been putting up a tree and lights for the last 5 years. It still isn't as exciting and joyful as if we had memories or traditions to follow but I'm hoping that will change as my young adult children marry and have children.

    Great time to worship the Saviour with family. We get together every year and exchange gifts under a 9 foot Christmas tree and enjoy great meals together.

    Not the birth of Jesus or anything, but huge Christmas Dinner, Lights and baubels etc, presents, and BOOZE !!! The whole (non JW) family round, Grandkids the lot.

    I treat myself, and anyone who wishes to join me, to a HUGE special Cuban Cigar or three, along with a good Cognac I get a real sense of happiness and well-being.

    I love OUR Christmas !

    Yes, we do secularly for the fun and being with family. We keep gift giving to a reasonable amount. I love Christmas songs; they've been on my radio for 3 weeks now! This will be our 3rd time celebrating (actually, my 4th if you add in that one time I did when away from home) and technically, I'm still "in", but with family that aren't.

    We just finished with the tree; looks great. As I said before, just snowflakes and snowmen. The neighbors like our yard; still just snowmen and snowflakes that stay up until March 1; thus a winter decoration. We have a traditional Bavarian dinner.
