My Merry Christmas Announcement

Christmas Controversy & Opinion Visit Defend Christmas.com Presented by Defend Christmas, this forum covers the difficult topics of the season -- from the famed and fabled War on Christmas to church and state debates to using the star or the angel on the Christmas tree. Modern Christmas celebration has it's complications -- schools are divided, some Christmas light displays are too much, some even argue that it is better to call it a "holiday" tree. Some merchants won't even say "Merry Christmas"! Where there is controversy, there is insanity. Even in Christmas.

Nice thread, Billy!

I, too, am a non-believer and was delighted to read Billy's thread. I have adored Christmas all my life - my parents went out of their way to make it special for me, I hope I succeeded in making it equally special for my husband (whose family belong to a religion which does not celebrate Christmas) and for my son. I get enormous pleasure from the lights, the music, the decorations, MY TREE (!!! can't wait until 'Tree Day' - 16 weeks, 3 days and counting!) but most of all from that special something in the air which even Scrooges and naysayers can feel when December rolls round. You can say what you like, the world is a slightly different during the season!

I'm glad you found the thread delightful. I do not really consider myself as a non-believer, even though a lot of people probably do. I am an Agnostic in every sense of the word. I believe it was Socrates who said "I know I am smart because I know I know nothing.
