It's tough when the people you want to share something with isn't all that eager. You are brilliant for staying true to your love of christmas. I admire the fact that you are getting people you have just met onboard with your plans. Sounds like a great way to make friends in a place you have just moved to. Ten years from now these people may all be part of your new traditions.
Once it gets closer to christmas, I have a feeling your family will realise how much they miss your enthusiasm for christmas.......perhaps thery just need the christmas spirit.
goodluck and everyone here will be happy to lend support and a listening ear to get you through it....
