Discard them? I have about 40 of them (large network of relatives and family acquaintances).

Donate them to a shelter or a charity.

Pagan perhaps, but given out of love, so give them away in the same spirit.

But I'd be participating in a pagan ritual, wouldn't I?

ugh, um, some of it I'd burn, really they are swamping the marketplace with 'decorations' and 'bric a brac', you could be better off destroying the stuff that's burnable, the plastics and metals, I dunno. What sort of stuff did you get, just out of interest.

Re: What should I do with these unwanted pagan Christmas gifts?
It's probably not the same thing that you get for Christmas but a pagan ex friend of mine once gave me some kind of table runner or altar cloth, it was black and it stank (they like to smear stuff with bodily fluids). She sent it in the mail. I used gloves to handle it and burnt it.

Yes I was thinking of burning some of them tonight. I don't know what they are because I haven't opened any.

There is no law against love. They were given to you in love and they should be received in love and appreciated.

To burn gifts given to you with love, is to reject that person's generosity and caring, and it would hurt alot of people if they knew. Hurting others is what God hates....not christmas gifts.

Pray about it. I used to believe as you do AC, but I prayed about it and God showed me the truth about it. I've been softening my stance against the holidays ever since.

I have a 'no gifts' pact with my siblings, it's not some large circle, just 3 of us so it's easier, start with a few if that's all you can do. A lot of people find it a burden and an expense and will appreciate it, although they may resist initially.

^ I organised it via phone, took a few phone calls to get them to agree, and my sister kept trying to break the pact.

But how do you know they were given out of love even if they were from relatives and family acquaintances. That would have to be determined by the OP don't you think?
