I'd like to hear how others incorporate their newer (to most families, at least) Pagan traditions with older Christian-oriented family traditions.

I grew up to celebrate Christmas, not for the religious aspect of it, but just the whole 'santa leaving presents under the Christmas tree' theme that a lot of non-Christian families are into when they have children.

When I then discovered my beliefs I found it quite easy to incorporate them into what I had already been celebrating since a child. Bringing evergreens into the house, for instance, originated from Scandinavia and is rather Germanic-Pagan in it's origins. I find it rather humourous that a lot of Christians will have a Christmas tree in their house actually, because the Bible warns against it. It says it's heathen. *chuckles to self*

'How she longed for winter then!-
Scrupulously austere in its order
Of white and black
Ice and rock; each sentiment within border,
And heart's frosty discipline
Exact as a snowflake'
~Sylvia Plath
