How i view Christmas


Folks,
I am not unduly worried by the myth of the Baby Jesus in the stable. I mean, i really don’t care how Jesus was born, its all a fallacy, a story that has is not useful to me at all. I even don’t know how the world came to set aside a day for this stupid story!

Good without godTwo thousand odd years ago nothing significant happened on December 25th, it was an ordinary day. That is no reason not celebrate the festival of hope for the future. We don’t need a non-existent God to send a son to be killed as a blood sacrifice for us. We just need to understand our shared humanity. That is the true message of this season of hope.

We could do it at any time, but December 25th is traditional. The festival is called Christmas, it contains the name of a mythic religious entity that I do not regard as a god, but then so do the words Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday and Friday. No big deal.

As an atheist I have no more problems with Christmas than I do with Wednesdays.

So i will drink, meet friends, and party! But am not stepping into any goddamn church to celebrate a mythical story of being born in a manger, the stars and the stupid vibe of the three wise men!
