To be honest, this is why we celebrate Christmas. Not only does DH usually get the day off (like everybody else - not something that happens on the solstice), but modern Christmas traditions are pretty much pagan-based anyway. The more I learned about pagan solstice rituals, the more I realized Christmas is SO not a Christian holiday. The Christian part is just an overlay, and an easily ignored one.
