Bah Humbug

When you suffer from chronic pain, every day is the same, whether it’s a holiday or not. It’s not like pain knows how to take a holiday. So, as an intractable pain survivor (and an atheist), do I have to celebrate Christmas? No, but I can enjoy watching everyone else celebrate it. πŸ™‚

If you’re not in the Christmas mood, that’s okay, don’t force it. The holiday season is almost over. Mrs. Claus is already thinking about the new diet she’s gonna start next year. πŸ™‚

  1. Uruguay population is 46%, but the country is secular. It’s written into their constitution, it’s a strict separation of church and state, and they take pride in adhering to it. Sure, most everyone celebrates Christmas, but the “official” name of the day is The Day of the Family. Easter week is called Tourism week. What people are celebrating is in their hearts and not for the government to dictate.

    That all being said, this atheist LOVES Christmas

    • Americans used to take pride in the separation of church and state. Don’t really know why that changed.

      I made the mistake of wishing someone Happy Holidays in a comment section and was sharply rebuked. But I don’t have any problem wishing you a Merry Christmas. πŸ™‚


  2. I love the “holiday season” because most people make an effort to exhibit their better selves; they are eager to help, quick to forgive, and show more compassion. If only they could remain this way all year round… but that would be too much work, I guess.
