You may be asking yourself, "What's an agnostic doing planning for Christmas?". Christmas, for me, has never really been about the single event that is said to have happened then (and by the way, its Mithras who's birthday was the 25th of December) but rather as a time to gather with family and give presents. I LOVE giving presents. That's probably the best part of the day, for me. Just the look in the receiver's eyes as you give a gift is pretty darn spiffy. I respect and value all religions but I grew up with Christmas, so I'm sticking with it.
