When do you celebrate Yule? Do you do it on December 25th, or do you go by the more traditional way and start end of November until January 1st, or from Winter Solstice until December 26th?
In our home, we start on Winter Solstice, and end December 26th, but for our non Pagan family members, we celebrate their Christmas with them. Mostly for the kids' sake, since in laws have gifts for them. It's all pretty much secular now a days anyway in my family. Even the Christians in my family just set up decorations and buy gifts; though they do go to church Christmas morning, they don't worship much else.
Back on topic, just wondering how my fellow Pagan parents do their holidays.
On Winter Solstice, we get up early and watch the sun rise, welcoming the rebirth of our Great God. The rest of the day is spent feasting and exchanging gifts. On Solstice night, we give all leftovers to homeless people and stray animals. CONT'D...

On the actual Solstice day we attend a public sunrise ritual. The group then has breakfast at a Mom and Pop restaurant. Our Pagan group helps throughout the year stock food banks but we really step it up during the holidays. At home we celebrate till the 25th by giving gifts to our friends and neighbors of fresh baked goodies and home made ornaments.
