Christmas or No Christmas
So I have a question for all my Revert Brothers and Sisters out there. How do you handle Christmas? Do you aknowlage it with your Christian Family? Is there an exchange of cards or gifts on either end?
This is year number 2 with out Christmas for me. Last year didnt bother me so much but I have to say this year I am missing it. I never had a religious family therefore never a "Religious Christams". Gifts and food, thats it. I miss the festivities. The baking cookies, Christmas music in the stores, trees and candles. Family and friends .... Nothing like that here.
Do any of you incorporate it into your family? I know its not the thing for us Muslims to partake in Kufar holidays but if it is our culture(american) and not religious, then is it ok?
I could use some advice here...I am new to all of this....
