This Secular Humanist Welcomes Christmas

Christmas can mean so many different things to so many different people.
But I think what might be the greatest meaning we can all share,
If we care to think that sharing Christmas is fair,
Was said best by Dr.Seuss in his popular book,
Listen, or take a look:

Christmas day is in our grasp,
So long as we have hands to clasp.
Christmas day will always be,
Just as long as we have we.
Welcome Christmas, while we stand,
Heart to heart, and hand in hand.

    The religious holday December 25 is correctly called the Feast of the Nativity. Fundies too stupid to know this call it Christmas, which is actually the twelve days season that follows it and ends at Epiphany, the season known to the Romans as Bacchanalia.

    Christmas is a name that has become attached to the holiday by custom, just as days of the week named for Gods are known as Wednesday, Thursday, Friday and Saturday. It is petulant and childish to get your knickers in a knot just because some Christians have decided to join our party. We should welcome them,and the charming nativity imagery they bring with them along with some pretty cool carols.
