I say, why not? We could call it xmas. It could be a secular holiday for spending time with family and exchanging gifts.
The Christians stole the winter festival from the pegans. Now it's our turn to steal it back!
Further discussion: If you already celebrate the winter festival, what symbols/themes do you feel are apropreate for a secular xmas?
- A pine tree (the "Christmas tree")?
Also, what Christmas movies would you watch during a secular xmas? The Nightmare Before Christmas
is one of my favorites.
What other traditions do you have?
