Comment: I got rid of one downvote--

(See in situ)

I got rid of one downvote--

I appreciate your opinion; I know Jesus wasn't born on December 25, etc.--

I don't condemn those who use Christmas trees; it's one of the very few things we do at our house that other Americans do--

but I don't like to see you being downvoted, and I appreciate your courage. Spouse and I tried to get rid of all of that and had open rebellion from our children who found that being homeschooled, not having tv . . . and not eating sugar--

was enough--

so we have a Christmas tree--

but no Santa Claus.

it's hard to be awake; it's easier to dream--
