Is it possible to be an atheist but take part in the Christmas celebrations? The reason I asked is that I see and hear of people who are outspoken in their beliefs, or disbelief. They professed to be atheists but when it comes to Christmas and other Christian-related holidays, they are all over it like a cheap suit.
I am not passing judgement on who should and should not attend their work Christmas parties, accept presents and enjoy the Christmas experience. What’s not to enjoy about Christmas? We celebrate the birth the most high while engaging in fun activities. So like I said, what’s not to celebrate? But if the Klu Klux Klan had a holiday that was widely celebrated by people of like thoughts and beliefs, would I feel inclined to be a part of the festivities just because it seemed like a fun time? I think not. I don’t like parties that much
So now, does this mean that such a person is either a hypocrite or confused? Or maybe just loves a good party? You tell me. I do think that most people who professed to be atheists are usually just confused or feeling their need to be radical.
Just my opinion, everyone has one. What’s yours?
Merry Christmas to all!
