I think there are certain people who feel like there's something wrong if Christmas isn't all Jesus, all the time. Because, y'know, he's the reason for the season. Except that, as bluerain put it to me today, Christmas is a bunch of stuff borrowed from pagan rituals, with Christianity laid overtop like a cheap toupée.

The light displays are actually my favorite part of Christmas. Here in the northern part of the country, we only get about nine hours of daylight this time of year. The lights really cheer up those long, dark evenings.

Nine hours? What are you running, a tanning salon?

Ah yes, the Jesusmas Brigade. Those people make me roll my eyes. 9_9

(Y'know, this icon I'm using says "Friendly Neighborhood Atheist" (it's the cover of an album of freethought songs by Dan Barker), but some people get so nasty about other people's beliefs or lack thereof that the "friendly" part gets really hard sometimes.)

Yeah. I see those bumper stickers or hear it said, "Remember the reason for the season!"

I say, "Oh yes! Winter solstice!"
