DS will be 26 months on Christmas, and I've really started to think how to interpret this season as a family.
I'm trying to focus on the spirit of Christmas - which to me is the gift of life itself, and of loving as much as you can, as best as you can. So, giving of ourselves to others is the best gift we can ever have.
I also like celebrating the Solstice - living here in Portland, OR it gets pretty dark, pretty early and the fact that the days *will* be getting longer is so comforting! And I like the image of the return of the light, or the light in the darkness. So, on the solstice I plan to have a warm evening at home, with good soup, bake some cookies, and tell stories to watch through the night.
And Santa ... I just don't know yet!
