Did your family attend religious services during the Christmas season? What were the customs and traditions involved?
My family did attend some sort of church service as a rule, if they were held. Sometimes they were on Christmas Eve, sometimes Christmas Day. I don't remember it being a Midnight Mass kind of thing, more of an early evening time. Not being Catholic, it wouldn't have been a Mass, anyway.
As I don't currently have a church home, I tend to not go to Christmas services. It would feel wrong to just go for Christmas an Easter. If you're going to go, I feel you should go regularly. I do try to spend some time reflecting on the reason for the season, reading the Nativity story, etc. Just because I don't go, doesn't mean I don't believe.
