Thank you. You nailed it! We are always looking for meaningful traditions that allow our souls to connect but the gift/ spending glut always feels so empty to me. I didn't celebrate Christmas as a young single adult, but embraced the tradition once we had kiddos. Consumerism hijacked an opportunity to celebrate renewal of the solstice, the return of the sun, reflection of our psyche and lives. Right with you in searching for ways to bring it back.
