Hello Post Christmas World

We made a conscious decision NOT to celebrate Christmas with presents this year. By the time the season is complete, I will have spent hours baking Christmas goodies, but not hundreds in the stores looking to cash in on a season that shouldn’t be about $ at all.
Dh saw a show on the History channel that said our founding fathers didn’t even celebrate Christmas and certainly didn’t have days off for the holiday.
I like the days off, but I’m not sure in all the hustle, bustle and credit card commercials we haven’t lost the real reason for the season Christian or not, Christmas is about family and rebirth and hope.
It’s easier to remember that when we’re not using the plastic to buy gifts.
