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. As coming from Catholicism, I will be celebrating Christmas in a few days. This celebration will not be fore Jesus but more or less a bond with my family to show we care and love for one another. My questions are: 1.)Can religious holidays be celebrated and not practiced without offending people and 2.) Would this a good time period to "come out" of the Atheist closet?
