Greetings, Lindsay! I notice you haven't been active at Atheist Nexus lately. <sigh> Sometimes it can seem a bit fragmented, with different groups for every interest. When you get free of your Navy online limitations, please consider a group for socializing, where we talk about whatever's on our minds, Hang With Friends. :D You might feel more at home.
i still celebrate religious holidays with my family ( i just dont recogize the religious part of it) ... i dont go to church with them.. not even for easter and christmas service. but everything else we would usually do for those holidays, we still do together.
