We pretty much cancelled Christmas about a decade ago and have never really resumed celebrating it. When we moved down to California in 2006, we donated the bulk of our Christmas decorations and the meager few things we still possess are buried in storage. Other than a cute wreath Jeff made at a master gardener meeting, our house is pretty much devoid of seasonal decorations this year.
We do like to gather with family or friends for a nice meal on "the day," but otherwise we enjoy a nice stress-free December.
Though, we know that our family and most of our friends still enjoy celebrating the Christmas / Hanukkah holiday and we hope you all have a happy and safe holiday.
