I thought since we have such a diverse group here it would be cool to hear about all the different holidays, both religious and non-religious. So please post what you celebrate, without commenting on what others do and when the celebration starts and ends, and anything else you would like us to know.
Please be nice, this isn't to debate who's celebration is right or wrong, but for us to learn about one another.

Since I asked I'll answer first, We celebrate Christmas- both secular and religious aspects. We get a tree usually the second or third weekend of Dec, my twins birthday is the first weekend or near so we wait. We send out cards and decorate the house. And of course there are presents. Our church starts Advent services on the first Sunday of the month, we have an advent wreath and candles, as well as a Christmas tree. The music and sermons will be Christmas themed. On Christmas eve we go to visit my in laws and have cookies and eggnog. Sometimes we open presents with whomever isn't going to be there the next day. Then Christmas morning we do more presents, and after a big breakfast head to my mom's house for more presents and dinner. So pretty traditional.

I don't celebrate I participate.
I like the "holiday" spirit, so I dont mind saying Merry Christmas. I dont put up lights or decortations anymore b/c that is a contridiction in so many ways. However on Thanksgiving I honor the Natives. On Christmas my entire family gets together to celebrate one of my (many) brother's birthday, born Dec. 25. I celebrate the new year in the spring as it was ment, and I on Jan. 1st I stay in and enjoy my family.
