With it coming closer, I look forward to the family togetherness, but I am not looking forward to the comments about taking my son to "such and such nativity" or that there is "such a nice child version of the bible story" and so on. I wish that people would not bring up religion every time near the holidays. I wish they would just let me enjoy spending time with my little boy watching christmas specials, looking at christmas lights, making sweets, and all those other non spiritual christmas traditions. Do any other atheists feel the same?Answer Question

I'm lucky because with the exception of two cousins, my entire family is atheist and so is my dh's family so there is no religious pressure at all.

I was raised catholic (couldn't stand it) and now converting to Judaism. We celebrate Hanukkah with DH father and "christmas" with his mom. Oh, the horror.
