While eating at a restaurant in Hersperia CA. The O'Reilly Factor was on and he was interviewing an Athiest that was trying to get Christmas banned in the USA. He stated that Christmas should be changed to Winter Solstice because Christmas involves religion and complained about people forcing their religion on him.
I'm definitely not religious but Christmas time is celebrated by many religions and local heritage. There's a lot more than Jesus in Christmas and people like him should just step aside and not be so ignorant. He also complained about everything being closed on Christmas. He said that the holiday shouldn't influence the federal holiday list.
I see Christmas as a time to be with your family and friends. A time of year that has everyone thinking about someone besides themselves. It's also another day where families sit down together at the dinner table and eat some awesome food. It serves as an extra day of rest away from the stress of everyday life.
Even though I'm not Christian, I take advantage of this day and will always be my favorite holiday.
Anyone else see that interview and care to comment about it?
What do other Athiests here think about Christmas?
