So forgetting my dad had a Facebook account, I listed myself as atheist on my account. I am 23 and live with my boyfriend a town away from them. I thought nothing of it until my parents said it was their greatest disappointment seeing me listed as atheist. Now it's almost Christmas. I want to hang out with them and have fun. And I like going to church just for the music only at Christmastime although they would hate that reason. They say they may confront me and boyfriend about our atheism. We could back up our beliefs...I am just disheartened that this may happen although I don't want to ruin Christmas. I would just hope they forget about our atheism for the time being and enjoy food and playing video games with my younger brother. I suppose I am ruining Christmas too by them knowing we are atheist. This is why I hate Christmas...the conflict of beliefs just gets awkward. I just thought I'd rant for a bit. My younger brother wants us to come on Christmas Eve so I probably will at least. I do anything for him. I hope to have a happy time on Christmas and if an argument results...hopefully we'll all remain calm and explain. Christmas sucks.
