I don't like christmas. I stopped liking christmas long before I became an atheist. Christians took the fun out of it many years ago for me. The rituals the solemn assemblies to reflect on some guy getting beat to a pulp and crucified for "me". How I owed this guy so much and I needed to be nice to everyone for this one special day. It was special because of what "he" did for me. I never bought into that and it just seemed wrong. I never taught it to my children. I give them presents but that's it. I have to find a new way to look at the holidays. Christmas bores me and there is no excitment whatsoever when it comes around.
