How do native Americans celebrate christmass?

It is said that the way that Native Americans live in what is called 'walking the Red Road'. This means that everything that is done within their lives is spiritual, which means that in everything that they do that they are answering to a higher calling other than their own.

If they need food, you give them food. If they are cold, give them a blanket to keep them warm. Whatever the case may be, it is because of this spiritual way of life that makes the Native Americans show the true meaning of what Christmas is all about.

Even the way that they decorate a Christmas tree is different, as everything carries a meaning behind it. For example, on a Native American tree you will see no lights. Instead, you will see mirrors that are used to keep away bad spirits that may infiltrate the home.
