Hi Krista,Loved the article. First time to your blog. My family isn't celebrating Christmas either, at least not the culturally acceptable Christmas with santa, reindeer, malls, and wrapping paper. We will celebrate the Christ en Mass with others who bear witness to the incarnation in the midst of our messy lives. As a family we made the decision to move gift giving from Christmas morning to St. Nicolas Day, who could be against giving gifts to those we love. We have freed Christmas for the pondering of the mystery of God come near and our call to service in the world God loves and is working to redeem. I have often wondered if we were along in these Christmas reformation/restoration efforts. Your commends resonate with me.Blessed Advent and Christmas!
