Celebrating Christmas, not just by giving and receiving gifts, has always been a big part of my tradition. Celebrating the true reason for Christmas, Jesus' birth. Going to a church that celebrates other faiths as well as Christianity, UU has been a wonderful experience for me. This doesn't have to be a conflict. Bible texts, advent, preperation for Christ's coming, Christmas Eve worship service, doesn't have to be given up by broadening my sense of spirituality. In fact, I consider myself very lucky. I can celebrate more, not less. Today is St. Nicholas Day. Traditionally, a holiday celebrated in the Christian faith but I am discussing it with my family and treating it as a story or a tradition. I ,myself, am glad St. Nicholas is coming to my house!
