Ok. So I wasn't really sure how to title this thread. DH and I were both raised Christian and then tried out half a dozen religions/teachings over the last decade. We both have a very esoteric outlook on spirituality. At the moment, I'm more buddhist centered and The hubs is, well, I don't even know. He's been bouncing around a lot but he's pretty secular still and into Descartes.
Anyways. Up until now our holidays have been pretty focused on putting lights up and that's about it. We never exchanged gifts and weren't into the whole Christmas thing. I like the idea of Celebrating the solstice. I want to get a tree on the 21st and cook a big, possibly vegetarian version of a traditional meal. I feel like maybe I should spend more time studies the roots of the solstice and Pagan origins of Christmas but am lazy and wonder if it's worth it. DD is only 5 months old so I have a bit of time come up with family traditions.... but then again, I wonder if we do things too differently, how will it effect things with other families/friends? Besides us, both sides are uber Christian. Like, Christmas and Easter are both about Jesus and have nothing to do with old-world religions Christian.
