So there are many mixed race families out there we all know. There are just as many if not more families that have members with different religions. In these families how do you celebrate? Do you just do a big gathering, celebrate each?

I come from a very tolerant family. We all are opinionated, and we tolerate each others opinions. That is what love is. When we do disagree...it gets loud. But we DON'T condemn each other or sling insults. In other words, we love each other.

...and isn't that what religion is SUPPOSED to be about?

Yes yes it is but I think the point has gone over a little bit. I am speaking a bit more literally then people are taking me. For example during December we each weekend go to a different family members home to celebrate the big holiday there (spills into January a bit as well) We do Hanukkah at my Aunts, Christmas at my mothers and Three Kings day at my cousins (his wife celebrates). We do the same for Passover and Easter. We share each others celebrations not only in support of our family members but to teach our children tolerance and to learn about what others do.

Its just a matter of respect. Couples should already take this into consideration before getting into the relationship and be supportive of each other. Religion often plays a big role in a relationship so the earlier they can settle their differences the happier they'll be as a couple. Cheers!

Well yes but I was more interested on how they choose to celebrate with their families.
