Who's Celebrating a Secular Christmas?
Christians can flail and splutter all they like, but Christmas is not about Jesus. They just plugged Jesus in a couple of thousand years ago and now they whine because people aren't making it all about their special saviour.

Well, tough.

My family has been fully secular and irreligious for about 10 years, but we have a strong tradition of celebrating Christmas because we come from a long line of Catholics and we've just always done it. We celebrate Christmas with all the decorations, right down to the fully pagan Christmas tree, presents and chocolates. While others brave the cold for Christmas mass we drink mulled wine and feast on turkey, and laugh about the silly things people still believe in in the twenty-first century.

Do you celebrate a secular Christmas season? Do you put on a brave face and pretend to be Christian? Or do you ignore the season all together?
I'd love to hear it.
