It's that time of year again where we come together as a skeptical family and talk about the holidays. How do you deal with gatherings around the various end of year celebrations where family members will often bring up politics, pseudoscience, and religious views which are firmly against those you hold? Do you hold back on challenging these views? Do you like to argue until the other side gets angry? Are you the peacemaker? What roles do (and should) holidays hold in our lives? Do you continue to celebrate religious holidays, such as Christmas, even though you no longer (or never did) believe in the metaphysical beliefs most closely associated with them?
