Our family has been trying very hard to emphasize holidays that celebrate Christ, and remove as much of the commercial/secular influence as possible. We are also careful not to judge what anyone else chooses for their family. We have chosen to remove Santa from our Christmas celebration, the Easter Bunny from Easter, and we do not participate in Halloween. This past year was especially difficult in that my 5 year old has a hard time answering questions from well-meaning people out in public (For example: What did you ask Santa for this year?). I would love to hear what has worked well for you - what you or your kids say to people when asked about the holidays, and what you incorporate into your various holidays to make them Christ-centered.
