It is currently Yule (21st-24th December). I am Pagan and therefore always recognize when Yule comes around, but I also celebrate Christmas.
There are three main reasons for this. The first is that I was brought up celebrating Christmas and therefore it is part of my childhood, my traditions and who I am. The second is that the majority of the Western world celebrates Christmas (or at least appears to!) and it would be difficult to orchestrate my celebrations and gift-giving on the 21st when everyone else does on the 25th. And finally, it all boils down to the fact that I love Christmas. It is my favourite holiday - I love the decorations, the songs and general festivities. So, for now at least, I will continue celebrating Christmas, but always remember to put up some Yule decorations (such as evergreens) and simply appreciate the season.
