I confess I wasn't feeling very Christmassy this year. In fact, this is the sum total of holiday decorating that I did:
No tree. No ceramic statues. No stockings. We bought a new bed in November and decided that would be our only gift this year, so no presents wrapped and waiting to be opened.
But despite having none of the trapping of the season, we still celebrated. We read Dickens' "A Christmas Carol" aloud over several weeks (if you haven't ever done this, I strongly recommend it. It's quite funny and you get more out of it hearing it out loud). We spent time making gifts for family and friends. And Christmas morning we got up at 5:30AM, had waffles for breakfast, and went for a long walk in our woods.
