I've seen so many beautiful decorations on everybody else's holiday blog posts. I sold off most of our decorations before our move or gave them to our daughter and son so I didn't have much to display.
My mother is the daughter of a zen priest and we consider ourselves Buddhists. However, we enjoy the secular Christmas very much. My mother had these decorations packed away to bring out every Christmas.
I was going to add my dreidel but I can't find it. I'm sure it's still packed away somewhere.
I remember the holidays as being a time of sensitivity where I taught 1st grade in Illinois. I avoided most of the holiday decorations and put up a small but equal representations of Christmas, Hanukkah, Kwanzaa and Diwali. Our music teacher also taught as many songs as she could find from the different celebrations of the season. We taught a unit called the Holidays of Lights. I was proud of the fact that we tried to teach the children that there were lots of different customs in the world. I was extra proud of my student's parents who respected and enjoyed the fact that I did not show favoritism to any religion. I rather loved that.
