Just a spin of from the santa thread. For those who arent religious what do you tell your kids about xmas?
I dont believe in god (in fact i have very strong opinions about god) but have still told my children than xmas is the day we celebrate the birth of jesus. Its is a religious holiday after all.
I explain that while mummy doesnt believe in god, it is part of our history and some people believe in god. I explain that xmas is a special time for family and giving gifts (like people gave to baby jesus).
I want my children to know the real meaning of xmas, regardless on what i believe.
Isnt it wrong to celebrate xmas without mentioning the real meaning???
