    Christmas.
    If you build a man a fire, he'll be warm for a day.

    If you set a man on fire, he'll be warm for the rest of his life.

    Crap...I meant to include Bodhi Day, and somehow didn't. My bad.

    Generally, I acknowledge Solstice but don't celebrate it per se. It's more that I'm aware that Solstice is the return to the days getting lighter and feel an ease about that.

    I don't celebrate Christmas, although I've been known to give small gifts at this time to friends if its meaningful to them and I will likely do that for my co-workers this year.

    My holidays are Buddhist holidays.

    Losar, (Tibetan New Year) is probably the most well known Buddhist holiday that I celebrate.

    I don't. Socially, I wish people a "merry Christmas" unless I know they don't celebrate, but as for the holiday itself I try to shut myself away and avoid people entirely. There's no sense in making others miserable when they're trying to have a good time.

    For some reason, Korimyr, I'd have guessed that you were one of the resident pagans.

    Re: What winter holiday do you celebrate?

    I have been celebrating Christmas since I was a kid. As I have gotten older, I have cared less and less about the holiday itself (but I love this time of year).

    I have agreed to raise our son Jewish, so Hannukah is definitely being celebrated in our household, although we haven't done gifts because Weston is too young to have any understanding (and because I buy him stull ALL the time).

    Now for Christmas, I haven't had a Christmas tree in my home since I moved into my current home (1999). We normally go and spend Christmas with my parents and siblings. This year, however, we are staying in town.

    Weston goes to pre-school at the Jewish Community Center, so he's not exposed to Santa at all there. Santa is NOT allowed there.

    So, for now, I won't be celebrating Christmas in my own home, but I send my parents, siblings, and nieces and nephews Christmas giflts. And if we were with my parents this year, I would be happy to celebrate Christmas, but not for religious purposes by any means.

    I know what you mean. I had some years that I went to the extreme measure of attending a to a silent Buddhist retreat in order to avoid Christmas altogether. It worked for me during times when I was sad.

    Now Christmas doesn't bother me so much. I either hang out with friends or share a quiet day at home with my partner on Christmas.
