I was brought up in a secular home. My parents even made me give back a small Nativity that could have hung on our tree, to my kindergarten teacher, because we didn't believe. I was just mystified, no one explained what we didn't believe to me either. I had loved all the little people and animals in it and was sad I could not have it.

I wonder if we might like to share some Christmas experiences here? I'd love to hear what pleasant ones you all would care to share. I'd love to read them.

I don't really have any special plans for Christmas. I don't have a church at the moment and my family isn't really religious. We are having a nice meal and exchanging gifts but that's about it. My mom used to be religious but she lost her faith. What are your plans for Christmas @Changing4Best?

I usually plan on invitations from others. I rarely cook, folks know this, so they either bring me a plate or invite me in. I got 3 plates on Thanksgiving.

My family told me that they bought me an air purifier, a good one! It's on its way here as I write this. That's more than I expected. I will treasure that and make a lot of phone calls to family and friends. So my Christmas will be really nice.

I've been struggling a bit with depression and I found a Bible passage that I really like; it is...

Matthew 11: 28-30 NIV 28 "Come to me, all you who are weary and burdened, and I will give you rest. 29 Take my yoke upon you and learn from me, for I am gentle and humble in heart, and you will find rest for your souls. 30 For my yoke is easy and my burden is light."

My husband and I will be spending Christmas together. Strange year with no church services, no big family meals or get togethers. Will spend a quiet Christmas with plenty of phone and zoom calls. Puts into perspective what Christmas is really about, especially when you no longer take it for granted.
