Subject: RE: BS: How do u celebrate midwinter godlessly?
My wife and I are atheists and our daughter thinks she is too (I think she should be somewhat older than 10 before proclaiming that).

On Christmas Eve, we shall go to church to see and hear our daughter playing and singing Joseph in a Christmas play during a religious service. Later we'll sit around a candle lit Christmas tree singing the old well known carols before looking at our presents. Then we'll play something together like cards or dice. Very late that night I'll listen to "Bells of Dublin" with the Chieftains. It'll be a Christmas very similar to the last few except that our daughter has played different roles before.

That'll be our godless atheist Happy Christmas and we'll feel good about it.
