I'm going to Christmas eve mass, and doing what I always do Christmas day, Church, then put on a traditional Christmas feast, Ukrainian style, enjoy the company of family. Some years we have Christmas 2 times, using the julian calender, 2 feasts!
Christmas is a celebration of Christs birthday, that's all that really matters. Goodwill and gift giving is ok, but people go overboard nowadays. kids now just think about what they are going to get, not the fact that the savior was born on this day. Sad.

Reverse your logic, the real joy of christmas gift giving is seeing the look on the other persons face when you give them a gift that they really wanted.
