Because many people celebrate the winter solstice (around Dec. 22) in many
different ways, I've always seen it as an appropriate time to share lots of
different celebrations with kids. But, that time of year HAS come to be
associated with Christmas, but these days so is Halloween and Thanksgiving
judging from the music and decorations in the store!
