Going back to ceremony 'has been a relief and enlightening experience,' says Makokis family

It's been 20 years since Janice Makokis of Edmonton and her family have celebrated the Christmas season.

There isn't a Christmas decoration to be found or carols playing in her home. In fact, Makokis's three-year-old son Atayoh hardly knows what Christmas is, albeit for the crafts and Rudolph songs he is learning at daycare.

Now that Atayoh's curiosity is piqued, Makokis said she recently explained to him the reasons why they don't take part in the festivities.
