i'm wondering if anyone would be willing to post their favorite holiday traditions and the faith/spirituality that they arise from...
i have two little ones and just this year am feeling energetic enough to think about consciously crafting a meaniful holiday celebration before my oldest begins associating christmas with overconsumption of overpackaged and unnecessary consumer goods, which was the primary christmas tradition of my family of origin.
i also want them to understand that there are many different ways that people connect with transcendence/God/whatever you may name it, so that when the time comes for them to take up their spiritual quest, they will see the many paths open to them.
so, would you mind offering up traditions, big or small, that help you connect with love, joy, gratitude or generosity (or any other state of grace) ?
many thanks in advance,
