    Happy commercial holiday season. That do you?

    You know, if atheism isn't going to catch on until somebody figures out a
    way to make a buck at it.

    Although Happy Trails To You seems to me to be pretty

    Not everyone gets paid holidays. Still, I intend to enjoy the day anyway.

    I'm up, the coffee's brewing as I write and later I'm going out and poke
    around with my camera before I hit the Chinese Buffet.

    Someone else wrote "peace to all men of good will." It occurs to me that
    we won't have peace until the men who are not "of good will" get on
    board, so here's a hope of peace for them as well.

    Whatever your reason for the season, I hope it finds you and yours well.

    In the US, there's Martin Luther King Day, President's Day, Memorial
    Day, 4th of July, Labor Day and Veteran's Day ... all non-secular holidays.

    And if you play your cards right, you get to pick and choose from all
    the rest. Next year, why don't you tell your employer you want time off
    to celebrate Columbus Day, Ramadan and Yom Kippur.

    Hey, it's a free country (or so they keep telling us), so take 'em ...
    as many as you can get away with. ;-D

    For me, and most Christians, fallen or otherwise, Christmas is mainly a
    sentimental event, gathering of the family, exchanges of gifts,
    feasting, etc.

    I actually went to Christmas Eve Eucharist last night (over 25 years
    since I did that), but that was for sentimental reasons, mainly in
    memory of my mother who was fond of attending Christmas Eve Eucharist
    though otherwise not a very dedicated Christian.

    BTW: that was not even a very good troll attempt, so I wish your more
    success in the New Year.

    "Merry Christmas" is a good wish to all, it is not "reserved" for believers.

    Don't take it too seriously. Few do.

    Speaking as an atheists it would be pretty sad is we could not say
    Merry Christmas, IMO.

    Roy Rogers is dead. My prized gift this year is a Roy Rogers/Dale
    Evans wall clock. Made in China. Distributed from Utah. Very nice.

    An excellent post!

    They forgot one thing - atheists have never started a war, or crashed an
    airliner into a building, or did the Spanish inquisition!

    Believers all!

    Lets hope that this year, not too many depressed believers murder their young
    children to send them to a 'better place'...

    And to you Alan, happy Saturnalia!
