There are a lot of people who get really depressed (under statement) over the holidays. Yesterday I asked my husband “so when is Jeusus’s actual birthday anyway?” We chatted historically how “Christmas” used to be a pagan holiday until the Church decided to declare it a Christian holiday. According to historians, Jesus was rumored to be born in August sometime.And who is St Nick, and how did that develop into Santa Clause going down a chimney, etc etc. Traditions are very powerful, but as with some traditions, they can be broken. Just as “traditionally” marriage is meant to be between a man and a woman, not two men or two women. Or, traditionally you eat popcorn and drink slurpies at the movies, not almonds and kangaroo sausage packed from home.
