How do you celebrate it exactly?  I know from one of your other posts, it's on a different day than Christmas, but do you have any specific traditions?

This is something we have only done for about 2 years now.  Both me and my wife lean toward the Wiccan religion beliefs, but have no connections anyone in that group at this time.  Because of this our celebration tends to be more like a regular X-mas, just with a few differences.  It's hard to get any good information out of the books available because depending on the author the traditions change.  So right now we kinda fumble our way along.  We have just this past weekend found a "Pagan Church" in our area.  We are going to try and check them out and see if that is where we belong.  We just don't seem to fit in with any of the main stream groups well enough to be devoted to them.
