Dani, don't wait for someone else to "separate" the aspects of this holiday for you. Ain't gonna happen. Please just enjoy whatever you please and ignore the rest.

Part of the "meanin' of the season" that everyone should be able to agree upon is GOODWILL TO ALL. Tolerating a wide disparity of beliefs would certainly be an element of such goodwill.

To me, it's mostly about peace and love, poultry and alcohol. I'm sure that my pre-Christian Yule-celebrating ancestors would agree.
