I don't know if anyone has yet but I'm coining Chris-mas!

The whole keeping Christ in Christmas got me thinking. One, as an Athiest I don't beleive in Christ and two, I don't prounouce the T in Christmas anyway. Honestly, the Holiday for us is all about food, family, friends and most of all, Santa claus! So from now on, Christians can keep Christ and I'll have Chris :-)sleigh

Merry Chrismas everyone!!!!

Not trying to start shit but your screen name is pagan baby implying that you are pagan meaning you possibly worship more than one god and may or may not be a wiccan. Atheist is no belief in god/goddess. I am just curious. I don't necessarily disagree with you considering Christ wasn't born in December and in fact most of our traditions celebrate the winter solstice and not Christ birth.

I think both sides who argue about this need to find something better to get up in arms about.

I already celebrate "kris" on December 25 and have for the last 43 years. By all means y'all are welcome to celebrate my birthday if you want.  I don't even care how you do it.  ;)

Sounds good to me.  I don't pronounce the T either so why not just get rid of it all together?  Love it!

I am a 36yo product of 13 years of Catholic Schooling; currently on parole for time served.

I don't really celebrate Christ per se. But I love Christmas Eve. I always roast a lamb. Because it's fucking yummy.
I play Religious Christmas music on Christmas Eve. Because it's pretty. If I drink enough wine; I get moved to tears. Silent Night kills my guts.
We open gifts on Christmas morning with Bailey's in our coffee and I make Prime Rib.

Christ? Well I'm still on the bench. But I do my thing and I don't judge the way others celebrate his "birth". If you believe in goodness, you're celebrating the spirit no matter what your religion is. I really don't get why people feel the need to announce the their whole opinion of "christness". Who cares? Do what feels right to you. That's what it's all about.
