I know this topic has been, and will be covered over and over again. It is seasonal, after all! Personallly, I do not acknowledge this, or any other religious holiday. I have to wonder why any atheist would? If we so despise any intrusion of theistic beliefs in our public lives, why would we view it any different in our private lives? Some will undoubtedly reply with "Its for the kids." I would have to disagree. As atheists, we should raise our children in a theism free environment. Any one else agree? If not, why?
