YouTube - Christmas Card from an Atheist

This video rocks. It's a complete rundown of how Christians adopted cultural traditions that had already been around for eons and smushed them into their own holidays. I knew most of the history, but still learned a lot, esp about Easter. I am now armed with even more info for anyone who dares to tell me I'm not allowed to celebrate!

I already knew a lot of that, but now I have even more knowledge of the origins the next time I hear "Jesus is the reason for the season" /barf

Great video!

Crazy enough to try all over again for a second together baby! Hoping for a much less wild ride this time!

I never knew until that moment how badly it could hurt to lose something you never really had. - Missed Miscarriage at 10 weeks - 3/26/13
