Exactly. That's very much how it was in my family of origin. We just didn't do Christmas, it wasn't a big deal at all, and it would have felt weird to do Christmas. My extended family has some Christians, like my cousins' not directly related to me grandmother, and we sometimes celebrated Christmas with them, and that was not angsty or a dilemma either. Sometimes people would express over-intense sympathy about how it must be horrible to be left out of Christmas, and I would always be bemused, it was something we'd never done so I didn't miss it. I do understand that Jewish converts who were brought up celebrating Christmas may miss the fun family traditions even if they don't believe in Jesus, though.

Miscellaneous. Eclectic. Random. Perhaps markedly literate, or at least suffering from the compulsion to read any text that presents itself, including cereal boxes.
