I understand not being religious and not attending church but you were raised christian? nbsp;She is Christian in some form or another? nbsp;I'd say that's a totally normal gift for her grandchild for christmas then, if you consider where she is coming from.
I attended church until jr high when my whole family stopped going. If she goes to church, it might be for a Christmas Eve service. That's it.
I appreciate her thinking of C but it seems like an odd gift to give someone who is not at all religious and has made no mention of wanting anything like this ever. It's just one more thing to laugh about my mom for, since she does things like this all the time.
Cowgirl said it best in her reply. That's exactly how my mom is
