Description: It's Christmas time all across America and Jenny is feeling left out. Her secular parents, born to different faiths that they no longer observe, don't believe in celebrating Christmas. All around her the neighbors have decorated their houses with festive lights, while her house looks drab and uninviting. It makes her feel like an outsider. Why does her family have to be different? She talks with her morn and dad about their reasons for not observing the holidays.

Then one day a teacher gives her an "awesome idea": she tells Jenny about the winter solstice and ancient traditions among many peoples of the northern hemisphere who celebrate this shortest day of the year in anticipation of the warmer and brighter days of the coming spring. Why don't we celebrate the winter solstice, too? Jenny wonders.

Her parents can't help but agree and a few days later they bring home a potted pine from the local nursery for the living room. What fun they all have placing decorations on the solstice tree.
