I was walking through Home Depot yesterday, and saw that they had up a Christmas display. Personally I think that there should be a law against putting up Christmas decorations and playing Christmas songs before Thanksgiving. Anyway, it got me thinking. All the Atheists I know celebrate Christmas. I think we should keep the Christ in Christmas and give it to the Christians. Instead, we should celebrate X-mas. Any thoughts?

...no matter how it´s called, or if it´s a pagan or a christian festivity, it comes from religion, including the existence of "god" or "gods", and as an Atheist you decided not to belive in this humbug. For sure it´s good to have some "free" days, but as it´s a "religious" "holy"day, you simply shouldn´t celebrate...
I don't celebrate it, so what to call it isn't much of an issue for me. I admit that I have very little understanding as to why an atheist would want to be a "cultural Christian," but it doesn't bother me that others find it worth celebrating. I just don't happen to share their sentiment.
As much as I despise enforced spirituality and religious conundrums, I enjoy every occasion there is to party and have a good time with people I love.
Maybe we could make Christmas gender-neutral and call it XX-and-XY-mas.
I don't actually celebrate Christmas and haven't done so for about twenty years now. The one thing that does get right on my breasticles though is the assumption by everyone else that because you don't, you're miserable.
Ironically it is them that seem miserable as they slowly but surely get sucked into the hype of buying unwanted gifts for people who in exchange will give them things that they have neither asked for or want. It should really be called end of year blowout of excess.
