I'm fairly new to this site and haven't searched through all the old posts yet. This is a topic that I imagine has already been discussed ad nauseum, but I haven't seen it so I want to throw it out there.
Are there any atheist/agnostics out there that celebrate christian holidays with their kids?
I grew up in a catholic family and grew up with easter and christmas. And to this day I still love christmas. Easter I can take it or leave it. I always thought that was kind of a weird holiday. But christmas is just fun.
I celebrate both christmas and easter with my kids. To me, there is so much comercialism around both of those holidays that I don't feel like christians have sole claim to them. A fat guy in a red suit putting presents under a tree. A bunny delivering eggs and candy. I can talk about those things all day without having to awkwardly dance around some religious meaning. I celebrate the holidays with my kids as a special time to spend together with family and those you love, and enjoy the magic of the season.
Anyone else celebrate these holidays in non religous ways?
