Of course, your case is different, but being able to practice what you belief is better than wasting your time with something you belief is total poppycock.
gonna disagree there. as a minor and living at home, the parent has every right to "force" their religion on their children (in America). The child/person (of whatever age) that is still living at home should not be surprised at the parent doing their job and raising them. but this is still way off topic.
Jesus birthday is the reason for the season, whether we believe that Dec. 25 was when Hes was born or not, this is the designated time of that celebration.
