It has become that of year when I think about Christmas and what it means to me as an Agnostic Atheist. On top of which the meaning of Christmas has also changed for me over the years especially over the last few years.
Though it has never been a religious festival to me but more of a mid winter break and celebration to add some light and relief from the dark days of Winter. On top of which it has become a celebration during which families, friends and loved one come together and enjoy a day eating, drinking and generally vegging around in front of the television.
This has always overshadowed the religious origin of Christmas as far as I am concerned and I suspect a large majority of fellow British people have the same view of Christmas. Personally in the modern United Kingdom which is more multicultural it is better that Christmas stops being a Christian festival but a festival for everyone to enjoy.
