I do normally. Last year I left them up for a few months after Christmas, but my mother eventually took them down since they "looked tacky".

another form of decorating:
my campus has this old ass cannon on it. It's been a tradition for years to paint it.. some times groups think outta the box. (speaking of which, last year some people turned it into a dick-in-a-box)

Smalls why do you celebrate Christmas? Aren't you like, agnostic or atheist or something along those lines?
Incredibly agnostic, borderline atheist.
My families catholic, so that's why we first celebrated christmas. Now it's just out of habit/tradition and an excuse to get the family together. None of us view it as a religious thing anymore.

Ah I got you. It doesn't feel weird that you're celebrating a holiday for a religious Epiphany that you don't believe in?

Not going to go on a tirade or anything, you certainly have the right to celebrate any holiday any way you would like to, it just seems a little odd to me.

Yeah, I too am not all that religious. I am probably Agnostic, but I'm not to sure what I believe anymore.

I do like to decorate with lights though. I love lights and wish we had more than we actually do each year.

nah, doesn't feel weird at all. The guys pretty much nailed it. It's all about getting the family together. The consumerism part kinda disgusts me, though, and every year I realize there isn't really anything I want. And likewise, my family tones it down every year.

I don't really regard it as 'christmas' either (always resorting to 'xmas' when I do have to say it). I just view it as the cultural tradition of 'the holidays'.
