I'll take what's behind door #4?

if by 'celebrate' you mean 'go to dim sum and then watch movies and play games with other non-Christmas-inclined people', then yes, I suppose I did celebrate it.

But I still couldn't resist voting for the invisible Pete Best option. :)

I picked door number four. I don't celebrate Christmas, but my Catholic extended family does, and we go to Uncle Paul's for Christmas every year. We're not celebrating Christmas, we don't get Christmas presents (we get late Chanukka presents) but we do get together with our Christmas-celebrating family on or around Christmas.

In addition to the standard Christmas festivities, I went to Church Saturday morning and held hands and prayed with my family before Christmas dinner (but we do that at any meal we eat together at home)...does that count as a religious celebration?

Most definitely yes.

Ours was sorta-religious but not overpoweringly so in the "conventional" religious sense -- in keeping with our family's interpretation of the day and season itself. Our focus for the month is eclectic-christo-pagan celebration, and Jesus' natal festivities are a part of that. Christmas day itself has the atmosphere of a birthday party for a person we're particularly grateful came into the world -- a day of celebration. So we have an advent wreath, use a glittering sun on top of our tree, have many many nativity scenes around the house, give thanks at the table -- but this year we didn't attend any church or properly "religious" ceremonies.

I had a half of a traditional Jewish Christmas. No movies but Chinese food on Christmas Eve and Christmas Day.

On Christmas Eve I saw What I Like About Jew With Lena and Rebecca and then saw the tree at Rockefeller Center. On Christmas Day I went down to visit Leah.

A combination of a Jewish Christmas and Christmas. Christmas eve was chinese food/What I Like about Jew/tree at Rockfeller Center with Gordon and Lena. Christmas Day was my annual Christmas dinner with Christian grandmother, family, brother and catholic sister in law at bro's house.

this is gonna sound strange, but i do a bit of both. My family is loosely Christian (my mom being the most faithful, though). We celebrate Christmas and there are definitely religious aspects. But I'm sort of secretly celebrating Yule the whole time. :)

and actually it was really cool because i did all four "major" holidays this december. my boyfriend is Jewish, so when he visited me, we lit the menorah every night. We also went to a Kwanzaa celebration on campus and heard Saul Williams perform. And we did a little Solstice walk in the woods. :)

I celebrate festivus, that way i don't have to feel like I have to buy people's love and the such. But celebrate the love none the less.
