What the fuck....
Apparently you can take the Christ out of Christmas but you can't take the cunttwatfaggotliberal out of Atheist.
Fun fact: Christmas shouldn't have anything to do with God, or the birth of the Christ. Yeshua "Christ" was born in March, not in December. His real birthday was actually in March of 6 BC. Which means the new millenium, in a christian point of view, really should have happened in March 1995. It's easily tracable, if you actually believe the three magi followed the Star of Bethlehem, which is one of the three comets that passed through our solar system in 6, 5 and 4 BC.
Over the centuries, a lot of stuff lead to the 25th becoming the "date of the christ's birth" But really it was just a load of bullocks.
In the year 274, solstice fell on 25th of December, and Roman Emperor Aurelian proclaimed the date as âEUoeNatalis Solis Invicti,âEU the festival of the birth of the invincible sun. In 320 , Pope Julius I specified the 25th of December as the official date of the birth of Jesus Christ. In 325, Constantine the Great, the first Christian Roman emperor, introduced Christmas as an immovable feast on 25 December. In 354, Bishop Liberius of Rome officially ordered his members to celebrate the birth of Jesus on December 25.
So yeah. Celebrating Christmas, even if an atheist, is indeed perfectly reasonable. Saying otherwise would be quite hypocritical.
