    Not sure if this falls into the ban of on Religion but its Merriest month of the year so....

    I'll post mine when I put it up Monday if the thread isn't shut down

    Funny thing is that Christmas is (to me) a mostly secular holiday. Are there plenty of folks that enjoy Christmas with out the religion? Least as I was raised, never entered a church or taught religious beliefs.

    Maybe that's just my take.


    We have a tree up. But it's for the cats to bat around. Haha! See? Empty boxes and cat toys.

    To me Christmas isn't a religious experience but I won't get into that. The season of giving and all that. Joy to the world :)

    Wow! Some gorgeous trees in this thread! Mine's a living Norway spruce this year, still chillin' outside until a few days before Christmas. I'm following the tradition of my paternal grandmother, who always had living trees for Christmas she planted after the holidays.

    What an awesome idea. I want to find a little one for my mom we can plant after

    Cool! I hope you will! It should be easy to find one at a good nursery.

    Then why the advent wreath??

    Growing up we never observed any religious beliefs. As an adult, recently (2-3months) I've taken up with the Catholics. That's why the wreath. But the tree is just a cat toy/holiday thing. I don't see it as an expression of a belief system. Make sense? I easily assume Americans think of Christmas as a holiday celebration, not a religious celebration- becasue that is the way I experienced it.
