    ......How do you celebrate Christmas?

    Do you buy gifts? Do you refuse to accept gifts? Do you tie one on? What?

    This year I took my spawn and their respective boyfriends to Las Vegas for an early gift.
    As in past years, I donate to charity for children.
    Ex-wife invited me to dinner and I will be there (just like in past years), I don't know if any of her other ex's will be there.
    Yep, I'll get drunk but that's no different than any other weekend.

    Put up a tree, decorate the house, buy gifts.

    In other words, the usual Christmas nonsense.

    Yeah. Pretty much the same here. Roughly half my extended family are Christians, so we play along. Neither I, nor my gf, ever really bring up our beliefs and are happy to respectfully participate in the traditions of our religious friends.

    What did you expect? Firebombing churches?

    The atheists from this board aren't interested in sharing their own beliefs, their primary function (besides getting drunk and taking their kids to the gambling and prostitution capitol of the world, it seems) is to spend time attacking Christians for THEIR beliefs.

    Yep. That's pretty much all I do. Except you forgot kicking puppies. Can't really get enough of that!

    Prostitution is illegal in Las Vegas.
    Find a post of mine in the past 2 years where I've attacked religion (other than $cientology) or a person for being religious.

    Your claims are false, but this isn't the first time you've done that.
