Christmas has always been simple for my family. No real religious significance, just the pagan stuff which is the fun and pretty stuff, like cheap and useful prezzies and decorating the tree. Carols are fine, there are lots that don't mention christian crap.
I don't want to lose the 'Christmas spirit' entirely.

Too good for me. The bleeding obvious didn't seem to fit a niche here.
