Ditto! I celebrate the Solstice. I’ve never been into Christmas because of all the things you “HAVE” to have and do. There’s just not enough time or money. So you’re rushed and frantic and on top of it all you’re supposed to be happy, and if you’re not into it all then you’re made to feel like there is something wrong with you.
