At our house, we celebrate both Solstice and Christmas. Solstice we do for religious reasons–we have a feast and read our stories and usher in the return of the sun. Christmas we do for tradition and fun. My husband and kids aren’t particularly goth so we mostly do straightforward decorating. We have an ever-growing Lego winter village and a gloriously tacky Christmas tree because I collect ornaments when we travel. And we have a couple of gothy touches.
Yule Brynner hangs out with us as we watch Nightmare Before Christmas and the Grinch. We watch the old cartoon version, of course, with Boris Karloff and the wonderfully named Thurl Ravenscroft. How about you? Do you love Christmas or are you a grinch?
