Every year me my wife and girls pile in the car a day or two before Christmas and drive around our town looking at Christmas Lights. My town, just like yours has the one weird guy whose on the news every year because he has a billion lights on his house.We check him out every year, then a few others then we go home.
I can't see how this activity could cause so much controversy, thank God err I mean thank your lucky stars these lights are now called "Holiday Lights". If they weren't, they'd really be offensive.
I know this time of year can be tough on many Atheists. So as usual I am here to help. Let's see how Angie O'neil makes it through these difficult times as an Atheist. She already meets once a week at a Mexican Restaurant for the weekly "Atheist Happy Hour", but this time of year they kick it up a notch and throw a Winter Solstice party. (And charity drive). At this party they can tell one another what stores to avoid. I guess some "blare" religious Christmas music. And they can help each other find all the places to shop for Christmas cards without all the horrible messages of hope and peace crammed inside of them.
The rest of this story is about few Atheists who seem bitter that Christians "stole" their holiday, even tho it has pagan roots?
You can check it out for yourself if you wish. http://www.tennessean.com/article/20091212/n (Sorry I don't know how to link and stuff.)
There is a picture of a sultry Atheist cougar chick that might be worth checking out?
One last thought, do Atheists think people might get saved by walking through stores that blare Christmas music or see a pretty light display?
Merry Christmas bitches.
