I was walking through Home Depot yesterday, and saw that they had up a Christmas display. Personally I think that there should be a law against putting up Christmas decorations and playing Christmas songs before Thanksgiving. Anyway, it got me thinking. All the Atheists I know celebrate Christmas. I think we should keep the Christ in Christmas and give it to the Christians. Instead, we should celebrate X-mas. Any thoughts?

I celebrate X-mas. I call it that and everything. What I want is some X-mas music!
This is exactly what I was thinking when I posted, but I didn't know how many people heard of Futurama. I also thought about calling it A-mas like Jeff suggested or Atheiestmas, which sounded kind of corney to me. I just wanted people to have fun with it. Thanks for posting the Video.
How about Christ-myth? Lol.
Love Christmyth. Thats too funny.
Well Merry Christmyth to ya then (that was the blog heading on my Christmas post last year :-)
Great! May I steal the image for my Christmyth blog this year (I'll give credit to you :-).
Thanks! Much appreciated.

...no matter how it´s called, or if it´s a pagan or a christian festivity, it comes from religion, including the existence of "god" or "gods", and as an Atheist you decided not to belive in this humbug. For sure it´s good to have some "free" days, but as it´s a "religious" "holy"day, you simply shouldn´t celebrate...
I don't celebrate it, so what to call it isn't much of an issue for me. I admit that I have very little understanding as to why an atheist would want to be a "cultural Christian," but it doesn't bother me that others find it worth celebrating. I just don't happen to share their sentiment.
