My wife and I are probably having my parents over for diner on Christmas, so I was sitting and remembered about how my dad likes to joke about saying grace in the name of fun. He always says it jokingly and is really just trying to get my mom to lighten up about the issue a little and realize my non-belief is fine and that the fact of me being a good person is what matters.
