 So most of us have seen the whole post on FB that comes around every year that says don't take christ out of christmas. What are you thoughts on this?

I am personally SICK of hearing it, I don't give a flying frack how you celebrate it but some christians just don't get that christmas was original a pagan holiday and had nothing to do with christ.

Another thing that bothers me to no end is that them same christians say non christians do not have the right to celebrating christmas, well IMO you have no right celebrating a pagan rooted holiday either.

Same with easter. I have yet to have someone post it on my FB but when they do they will get the unfriend button, I just can't be friends with ignorant people.

 

Atheists or non christians how do you celebrate christmas and what do you say to people that say you have no business celebrating it in the first place because you are not christians?

I ignore the chuckleheads.. honestly, their words mean very little to me (unless I am bored, then I use them to entertain myself)

and we celebrate the holiday season with no deities period. :) We decorate and eat and give gifties... that is it. I love it.

There is only one person on my friends list who posts that sort of thing.. and I hit the "hide all posts from person's name." ... problem solved without having to be dramatic and "unfriend" him simply because he has different views than I do about one thing. 

It's amazing how people don't hold themselves to the standards they set for others.

Christmas is all about the baby Jesus. If it weren't, it wouldn't be named after him.
