I was having a conversation with a family member the other day and they just couldn't grasp the concept of not celebrating christmas. My wife and I stopped celebrating christmas years ago and each year if we go to a family members house on 12/25, we inevitably have to explain why we no longer observe the day as we once did. I usually explain that I am an agnostic and that my wife is a christian and that the whole story/fable just doesn't fit nicely into either catagory. We both acknowledge that since most people are not working that day, that it makes it a good day to enjoy the company of our extended family and some good home cooking!! As I speak to friends/co-workers/neighbors I get a multitude of reason why people celebrate but I want to know why do Black people celebrate the day??

Is it a day that you observe because you're christian and if so how??

Is it a tradition that has been observed in your family for longer than you can remember that you just carry on because it's always been that way?

Do you believe that a chubby european will bring you present depending on wether you've been naughty or nice?? (from the people that I've spoken to, you'd be amazed!!!)


Hopefull this doesn't come across as patronizing, as that is not my intention.

Happy Holidays to you and yours, regardless of how you do or don't celebrate it!!!
I celebrate it because of tradition and it doesn't cause any harm to anyone that I do. I have family members that don't and I don't ask nor care why they don't. I don't want them however telling me why I shouldn't. I enjoy it. I like giving gifts and receiving them.

No disrespect to anyone but......................are there Black people who actually go carolling?? I mean singing about a "white x-mas and all"???
I've never seen a black caroler but would have enjoyed it.

I am looking for participants in a study to share their experiences as former African American males served as ED/EBD/BD in the southeast. Participants ages 18-35 will be interviewed and given the opportunity to express their thoughts, feelings and impressions of their school years. If interested or for more information please contact me directly. Thanks, Cheryl

Thank you for the welcome. I have a question. I am a doctorate student in need of participants for my study. Is it allowable to post a request for study participants. If so, this is the post that would be uploaded:
