On a related note, when do you put your tree up? I'm old enough to remember watching "The Homecoming." That was the movie that gave birth to The Waltons. Anyhow, they went out to the woods and cut down a tree on the day before Christmas. That was just in time for the 12-day season, though I doubt Virginia Baptists were big on church "seasons." On an unrelated note, my mother's family tradition (Armenian) was to exchange gifts not on Christmas but on Epiphany (January 6) in connection with the Gospel story about the astrologers who brought gifts for Jesus.
