"I would recommend to do this either awhile before or after the holiday itself. Why? Because this time of year is stressful enough for everyone without adding this extra stressor to the mix. I believe that if you were to try this in the midst of the…"

"I don't much worry about if people are offended that I'm not praising Jesus on Christmas. I do have a hard time understanding some people I know who are in a rough spot and post things on Facebook about not being able to afford much for…"

"I still do Christmas and in fact we normally have the most Christmas Lights in the area up ... like at Clark Griswald levels. You won't find any baby Jesus's or wise men though in our displays. We treat it as a secular holiday at this…"

"As Ryan said, every family dynamic is so specific that it should really be a personal decision. However, if you do decide to do so, I'm sure I and others would be willing to give you ideas and tips on doing so. I see nothing wrong with still…"

"1. The people who are offended by atheists continuing to celebrate holidays like Christmas aren't worth worrying about. Some people are going to be offended no matter what you do. I think you should do whatever you want to do. I continue to…"

"Coming out is so personal, I wouldn't want to tell you when or where to do it. It all depends on your relationship with your family, and how you feel about it. My relationship with my dad was tight enough that I could say over the phone,…"

Are holidays wrong?

Im quite new to the no God agenda, but I finally made the switch. I have been looking around this site as along with the rest of the web and I found many Atheists put down holidays as strictly religious.

My questions are: 1.)Can religious holidays be celebrated and not practiced without offending…See More
