I'll try to get in here, just to wish my other family a Merry Christmas
Education not Legislation
Now that we are talking Christmas...I wanted to ask people if they follow their "religious" beliefs at Christmas? I am Lutheran and we celebrate Xmas on 24th of December and also because I am European
I know religion is a "touchy" subject!
I was just wondering...I know some religions don't celebrate Xmas like Jewish and Muslims...so if there are any Jewish or Muslims here...what do you do when everybody else celebrate Xmas?
We celebrate 3 Christmas's in my house.
On 6th December we celebrate the euro tradition of "St. Nickolas", we give out presents consisting of chocolates, homemade sweets etc, we have OH's euro family over for lunch, the dad's take the kids on a walk while us mum's prepare sweet baskets etc, the kids come back & magically St. Nickolas has arrived with baskets of chocie's & sweets etc.
Looks like i wont be here @ forum much tomorrow as it's the 6th, opp's guess i will be busy stuffing my face with chocies, home made sweets etc
My family & i are Roman Catholics & we so celebrate Christmas with religious themes, midnight mass on Christmas eve.
Seeing as my OH is of euro decent we too celebrate Christmas on 24th Eve, family gathering with full dinner, roast turkey,pork,roast vegies etc, some form of chocolate deserts & Italian fruit flans/cakes, open pressies from family members.
On 25th we celebrate Christmas "traditional Aussie Style" as i am a born & bred Aussie & want my kids to celebrate Christmas "traditional Aussie Style" , in which my OH luvs the Aussie Christmas as much as he luvs euro Christmas. Our kids wake up in morning to presents from Santa Claus, we have Aussie themed / bbq meals etc on 25th & we stay at home for the day with our kids so they get to enjoy playing with all their pressies.
