for the most part, yes. we celebrate family, eat a lot, exchange bottles of wine and books and have fun with the kids. there is a santa myth involved, but the kids are 2.5 and 7 months, so anything else is a bit too abstract and complicated for them.
tough to remove gift-giving (for any generation) from the grandparents.
