Writer's Block: B.Y.O.B. Holidays

Which December holidays do you celebrate, and why? One random answer will win a $50 Amazon gift card. [Details here]

Chanukah to honor my ancestors. Solstice/Yule to honor the longest night (joie!) and the sun's return. XMas as a family day.

This year with the little one, lordaerith and I had to figure out what were going to do. We decided that Solstice/Yule was our family gift-giving holiday for just the 3 of us and that XMas is a holiday that we can celebrate with extended family/friends. As for Chanukah, I'll probably continue the tradition my parents started of 1 present on the first night (and the rest of the presents to come at Yule & XMas).
