Bit of both, I guess. I'm not catholic but have a "Either your in or your out" family type. It was tense (old fashioned family member) and for the first time I left large amounts of fruit as offerings.

On the solstice I went out into the woods and did a blot to the gods to herald blessings in the coming year. I then sat for a long time meditating on things I have done this past year. Then I drank some mead and gave some to the land wights in that area and left.
On Christmas I presented gifts to my family and friends. I ate some ham and that's about it. I celebrate on the 25th as more of a cultural holiday, not to celebrate the "birth of Christ." To each their own though.

This is my first Yule I will celebrate since I am new to this path. I have a broken hip, so I guess I do simple prayers and offerings to deities.
My family celebrates Christmas with simple going to church and having a nice family dinner. I am not a Christian but I spend Christmas with my family because it's one of those days when we are not too busy for each other. :)
