I know, you cannot receive a gift on a specific day, which doesn't surprise me.
It's what people do, when they're masquerading as an angel of light. LMAO

I even knew an atheist who enjoyed Christmas gifts and had a Christmas tree.
I wonder how many evergreen trees are produced to be sacrificed for Santa each year.
Christians can enjoy gifts each day of the year, but just Not accepting un-scriptural gifts.

I enjoy eating everyday and sometimes will have a turkey with stuffing, a honey-glazed ham or a huge roast with vegetables. Of course the vegetarian may have a different diet, leaving out the meat. Nothing is clean or unclean in, or of itself, it all depends on your personal tastes and/or preferences. If you do not want a Christmas tree or a turkey, then don't buy or pick up one.

Personally, I get a living tree and transplant it in the backyard, which happens to be a living forest of Ponderosa pine and Aspen trees.

Personally, I get a living tree and transplant it in the backyard, which happens to be a living forest of Ponderosa pine and Aspen trees.
When I was 8 years old my Uncle bought a live potted pine and planted it in his side yard after Christmas was over.
Sad to say, that many years later the tree finally got so very huge it interfered with the house and had to be cut down.
So, my point is that a tree can be purchased and enjoyed at any time of the year.
Our one neighbor just planted a tree this fall to be in memory of her adult son recently killed in an accident.

As far as food: it does Not commend us to God as per 1st Corinthians 8:8, so No need to fast at so-called Lent.
Also, there would be nothing wrong with making or not making a special meal for someone, but when a false religious practice is involved then it is best to abstain from that practice. Please notice why at 1st Corinthians 10:20-21.

Just think: a living forest of Ponderosa Pines and Aspen trees can be part of your yard at the coming time of Revelation 22:2.
Mankind will Not only see Ponderosa Pines and Aspens but see the return on Earth of the Genesis "Tree of Life" on Earth for the purpose of ' healing ' of earth's nations. Healing as also described in the 35th chapter of Isaiah.
