The Holidays are upon us once again, and that means putting up the Yule/Christmas tree, spending time with friends & family, cards, presents, yummy food, and STRESS!
In my home we celebrate the holidays as one big celebration, and we tend to leave religion out of it. I'm pagan, my husband is a non practicing Catholic who leans heavily towards being pagan, and our daughters have pretty much decided to walk the same path; our families on the other hand are very Christian.
I have come up with ways over the years to try and celebrate both Yule and Christmas and keep everyone happy, I did a post last year on the subject titled "Celebrating Pagan Holidays In A Christian World"
Though those are all good ideas and have worked to keep our families happy over the years, somehow I am left feeling let down by the lack of my spiritual side in my celebrations; so this year my goal is to incorporate more of myself and my beliefs into our celebrations.
Now I have to decide where to start, any suggestions?
