    This is strange to me.

    What gives?
    I'm an agnostic. Definitely not a Christian.

    I agree, it's absurd. I don't do the whole Christmas thing.

    Christians (sort of) took it from the pagans.

    Atheists are taking it back lol.

    Anyway, I think it's become a cultural thing that transcends any one religion or belief system.

    Why not change it to "World Winter Superday" then or something?

    There's more evidence for fairies than you might think haha.

    I'd be fine with that. I'll continue to put the World Winter Superday Tree up every year and won't have to listen to southern evangelists telling me I shouldn't celebrate if I'm not saved by jesus.

    The great thing is that World Winter Superday would happen twice a year, once in December/January, and again in June/July.

    Now there's misplaced confidence - Jesus couldn't even save himself!

    Even his survival looks a bit touch-and-go at times.

    Father Christmas - now there's a survivor! Oh crap, that means we'd have to change it back to Christmas Day...
