I enjoy Christmas. It’s an odd thing to say with my views on religion. But I do.

To me Christmas is a secular holiday. In many ways it’s going back to the roots of all this: winter solstice.

It’s a celebration of family. A celebration of the days getting longer… or at least not getting any shorter. A feast. A break. Nearly uniformly there are bright colors involved to get out of the gray of the time.

Sure, I capitalize it. It’s a proper noun.
