A new additional temporary family member :)

James arrives back home tonight for his college winter break, staying until early January. He will be bringing home a friend who will be staying with us... someone who recently came out as gay, and is not welcome at his (conservative Christian) parents' home in NY state. So he will stay with us for the next 3 weeks.

Apart from fitting seven people and two cats into our small 1100 sqft home, I'm wondering how best to handle issues like Christmas gifts and a tree. I don't want to either rub salt in an open wound, or have him feeling left out if there's nothing for him under our tree. And anything with religious content might be a sore spot right now for him. Yet I don't want to completely change our own rituals and traditions... hm. Any thoughts?
