Just wondering if there are any Waldorf families out there celebrating it and what you like to do?  I know that Frontier Dreams is doing it this year.  Merry, merry! 

Mothering an Autumn (08) , a Spring (11) , and another Autumn! (Nov. 2013)

Taking what works and leaving the rest

The closest I get is leaving our tree up until Epiphany. So I guess we observe those days, but we don't celebrate them per se.

We're Catholic so we get alot of help.  We go to masses but we also have special music with each of the days.  We follow the wisemen's journey.  We spread out our gifts and our stories.  We save our "merry Christmases" until after Christmas.  We don't sing Christmas music until Christmas starts.  Advent is celebrated before Christmas so we just move our time table a bit.  We celebrate winter solstice too.  Our "holiday" season is rather long and drawn out with many small gifts and traditions (advent calenders, st. nicholas stories and stockings, yule fire and dinner, Christmas mass dinner and presents, Epiphany, Mary's feast day, and a special nativity).  No big gifts or big days but lots of homey fun along the way.
