Wow, I can actually agree with that quite a bit. It's like in Japan, they celebrate christmas as just another holiday to give presents and be close to one another. Why does religion need to be dragged into it?

Why does religion need to be dragged into it?

Perhaps because Christmas started as a religious holiday 1600+ years ago?

I know that, perhaps I should have been clearer why do we need to drag into this the idea that if we don't have a religious component the world will end and evil secularists will rape our babies.

A bit of an old thread but I don't care.  That was a great article.  I enjoyed it even after "the reason for the season."  Wink
