    "Ho, Ho . . . Whoa! Secularists Get the Holiday Spirit
    Posted: 11/24/09
    Perhaps the moral to this story is, "If you can't beat 'em, join 'em."

    After years of waging the so-called "Christmas wars" -- on the side opposing religious displays in public spaces -- it seems non-believers are getting into the spirit of the season.

    The American Humanist Association unveiled its holiday ads on Monday, and they feature a bunch of smiling revelers wearing Santa caps in a pitch that looks like just about every other holiday come-on, complete with red-and-green color scheme. But the giveaway is the jolly message broadcast in capital letters:

    "NO GOD?. . . NO PROBLEM!"...."

    My least favorite part of the season... all the complaining about this the fictional "war on Christmas."

    It just puts me right out of the holiday spirit.

    meh, I'm just sick of hearing all that crap christmas music which is then covered by bad teeny boppers who think they are soooooooo cool and stuff like OMG

    And then the christmess decorations in the store MONTHS before december, this constant gift buying, then putting up with people who have a fake "happy" going on because, ya know, it's the holidays..

    Oh bugger it, I hate christmas, it's boring, commercial and has absolutely not use besides lining the pocks of other people.
