    Good advice. Having to say no and dealing with negative attitudes creates stress and can set a whole mood to the holiday season. How you react to others can help quell that negativity and keeps the joy in the holiday alive.

    Just tell people flatly that you are not celebrating Christmas and will not be exchanging gifts or attending the parties. Then adhere to what you have told them. Some will even be relieved and may decide that is the way to go for them as well.
    If people truly love you they will agree to meet with you at other times during the year, maybe at a family picnic, or camping, or just a one on one get-together. There are lots of alternative ways to gather with others.
    When you do this, you will find the stress just disappears.
    Just FYI: many Christians are discovering that Christmas is a pagan holiday and originates from the worship of the sun. So, many Christians are walking away from it and are keeping God’s holy days which have much more meaning. (You can find these in Leviticus 23.)
    Finally, Christmas teaches our children and grandchildren to be selfish and covet. We live in a society that worships materialism and this is a very unhealthy thing for our children to learn.
