Do you put up religious Christmas decorations in your home?
If so what decorations and where do you buy them?
We put up decorations but none of them are religious. Decorating one's home this time of year us a pagan tradition anyway.
After 25 years in the Church where Christ's birth, death and resurection was effectively remembered/celebrated/commemorated every Sunday, Christmas and Easter for me became non-events.
Most of my decorations are left over from family members. My grandmother had ten tubs of Christmas tree decorations. Then another three tubs of trinkets and displays. Most of what I have came from her that I grew up with. They help me get in the Christmas spirit with all of the memories.
Oh yes, and I'm not sure where they all came from, but I just somehow accumulated them over time.
No, I put up traditional things such as wreaths, garland, and a tree. These types of items can be found in all types of stores in the US and some even in convenience stores here. I got this year's decorations at Bed Bath and Beyond and Garden Ridge as I like to change things up.
I do, eventhough I understand that Jesus apparently was not born at this time of year and eventhough I am a secular humanist. The philosophy of Jesus was revolutionary, his life a lesson and basic framework for how society can exist in harmony. I honor the fact that he apparently walked upon the face of this earth, and that he inspired great concepts of relating with each other.
