I'm an atheist. But I LOVE Christmas. Why Christmas Comes In The Cold By Denise Noe In almost any context, cold represents lack of feeling; winter, the heart without love-- as dead as the branches of a fruit, flower, and leaf-denuded tree. Yet in the time of bitter cold, Christmas comes a-caroling when its message of generosity could not possibly be more bold, insisting we find the love held within December's frigidity.

"I'm an atheist. But I LOVE Christmas."

Interesting statement. Just what meaning does it have to you?

It means love and generosity and caring. It means gift giving and gift receiving. It means that the year is whole because it ends with a loving celebration.
Christmas means a lot to me as you can see by my poem praising it.
Christmas is my favorite holiday and I'm a person who is extremely interested in holidays and "special" days.
Bill O'Reilly asked this question on his Fox News program last week: "Why do I have to be the leader defending Christmas against its attackers?" O'Reilly was criticizing Rhode Island Governor Lincoln Chafee's renaming his state's Christmas tree a "holiday tree."

Good question. It's time for Christians to realize that their religion is under attack, and they had better start fighting to win the war for religious liberty in public opinion, in the courts and in the schools.

The war against Christianity has been waged by the American Civil Liberties Union, the Freedom From Religion Foundation and similar groups....
