My Merry Christmas Announcement

Christmas Controversy & Opinion Visit Defend Presented by Defend Christmas, this forum covers the difficult topics of the season -- from the famed and fabled War on Christmas to church and state debates to using the star or the angel on the Christmas tree. Modern Christmas celebration has it's complications -- schools are divided, some Christmas light displays are too much, some even argue that it is better to call it a "holiday" tree. Some merchants won't even say "Merry Christmas"! Where there is controversy, there is insanity. Even in Christmas.

12 16x16 Family Opposition?

Most in my family do not celebrate Christmas or any of the holidays due to religous beliefs, and some have even cut ties with me because I do. I'm not even able to talk about it or show my parents pictures of my children on christmas morning because they oppose it so strongly. Has anyone here faced a similar situation with family members? And do you have any advice on dealing with it?
