|I'd appreciate the fact that he doesn't buy into the commercial hype, and try to create your own family traditions that don't involve buying a pile of "Christmas themed" unnecessary stuff.|

My husband is from Taiwan, and doesnt traditionaly celebrate Christmas. He likes tradition and family celebration, but is SOOOO practical that he is having trouble understanding stockings, gifts, christmas themed treats, christmas trees, etc. We agreed we would only purchase the gifts that we need (food processor, blender type stuff) and last night I asked about stockings (we didnt do them last year :-() and he agreed . . . but usually DH agrees and changes his mind later!
Anyone else experience lack of interest in christmas, or other important traditions? Any tips on interesting him?
Atleast he DOES value family oriented activities, and our first baby is due RIGHT before christmas. HELP! (if you havent noticed, I LOVE LOVE LOVE christmas)
I'm knitting my dh a pair of socks this years. He doesn't need the socks (he can just buy them) but I want to give him something that he knows I worked on for a long time out of love. It probably cost about $12 in yarn but in his eyes they will be priceless. He appreciates the work I do when I knit socks-- but he never probably expected a pair made for him!
