This year I am going to stay up all night winter solstice to celebrate making it through the longest night of the year. I am going to be taking vacation days that week so I won't have to go to work the next day so I understand most people can't do that. It won't be for pagan reasons, but for fairly straight forward ones- days getting longer is certainly something to celebrate not to mention that it must have been a very heartening event for our ancestors for thousands of years.
I still celebrate what is now called Christmas, but for me and my family it is purely secular.
