Why I Think Secular Christmas Is Amazing
I don’t particularly mind that Christians like to ironically celebrate the supposed birth of their savior on a Pagan holiday. In fact, I rather like Christmas.
I don’t believe in Santa Claus either, but as one humanist told me once, I believe that Santa exists in the “example of Saint Nicholas” and “the spirit of anonymous giving.”
I’m also not a big fan of rampant, irrational consumerism.
So why do I like Christmas? Tim Minchin’s song below pretty much captures why.
