Okay so like i was wondering.. i am still deciding if on christmas i tell my daughter santa brang her presents, or do i say these are from mommy and daddy and expplain that on christmas we celebrate jesus. i know all kids like the idea of the mysterious santa coming into there house at night and leaving them awsome gifts,, but when ur child gets older and u have to tell them santa is not real. there ganna think.. and u lied to me this whole time?Not only that it is the right thing, because christmas was ment to celebrate jesus right?... well i would like to know what u have done with your family. do u follow tradition and use santa or do u celebrate jesus on christmas?

I think that is really wonderful that even though it is not your religion you would still have an open mind and share such a special time with other that have not the same religion as you..beautiful:)

My christian friends (a few of them are in Dubai, USA and UK) they come home with their family members whenever they come to Bangalore and have lunch or dinner with us. One of two of them participate in our festival. We hardly discuss about relgion when we meet and it is greatly respected mutually. It is ultimately issues and common interests and the mutual faith we have between us.

As much as I don't want to think about it, I can't deny the fact that Christmas is just around the corner! (looking to my left and right searching for christmas)LoL We celebrate it here, together with our family and sometimes with relatives or close friends too!;) By next month, children will sing christmas carols in every homoes they get to come across with and we might be giving them money or candies in return. We'll be expecting friends, godchildren and other relatives to exchange gifts with one another too. For me, Christmas is about spreading the spirit of giving, of joy and hope. It's also for kids, aside from celebrating what other's believe was the day Christ was born..

Yes yes this christmas is coming.. its ot such a great one for me this year. i know its not all about what and how much you can get for your child,but when i know that it wont be a great christmas with many toys for my daughter i start to feel down. shes only 2 but she knows christmas, shes more worried about the decorations though so i think if i just make sure the house is all decorated pretty she will be okay with a few toys.lol i think christmas is more then just christs birthday. it is to about giving and joy..this christmas though it will only be me and my daughter then well go to a friends and share christmas with them for a bit...
