One of the Methodist churches here has a late Christmas Eve service that is open for anyone to attend and it is always packed. The church is very old and historical with the most beautiful stained glass windows. They lower the lights, and just light the windows, then everyone lights a candle, and the service is mostly Christmas carols. After the hurry, and stress, of preparing for Christmas, I love how peaceful it is. Its a great way to start your Christmas celebration with your family and I look forward to it. Is there any thing like that you look forward to? In any belief system, doesnt have to be Christian!!! :)

I live in a region where Christmas traditions are very important. I am an atheist but that doesn't mean I can't enjoy the festivities! There are churches here that celebrate midnight mass with live (local inspired - traditional costumes, mass spoken in Provençal, etc.) nativity scenes. It's pure magic.
