You're welcome, Esther. In class today we also looked at the downside to Christmas - the expense, the obligation to be happy, missing loved ones, etc. Unfortunately, Christmas can be a very hard time for some people.

Nina, I´ve found an interesting article in the New York Times,about the anual conflict faced by many families with different religions over how to decorate homes, how and when to give gifts, and which rituals to celebrate.
