Anyway, I'm an atheist too but I don't get all twisted about "Christmas". Sure it's based on a religious festival, but the holiday has a huge secular component nowadays. I even sing carols like "Silent Night" because I like them. And because my singing can drive a bagpiper to suicide
I was just being a pain in the ass, it's the little things in life that make me happy.
