Celebrating Christmas, as a Baha'i, is a very personal matter. I love attending the Lessons and Carols held here on the island in the Episcopalian Church (along with most of the islanders, no matter their faith). I love seeing the lights and decorations, although I usually do not put up any myself. (Well, I have decided that next year I might put up some lights around the windows.) I look forward to the loving times and meals with my family - our family rituals and foods that make it so special (including making gingerbread houses with the grandkids each year). We do exchange gifts, but not outlandishly.
The following article truly articulates what this season, and its festivities, mean to many Baha's. It certainly resonated with me, and may help to untangle some confusions.
Whether you wish to read it or stop right here, may I wish you a joyous season, special times with your loved ones, and a renewed lift in your spirit, no matter what your personal belief system may be. Christmas blessings!!
