Happy Holidays

As an atheist who celebrates Christmas, I don't see what all the fuss is about.

I mean, I think I do, but wouldn't it be nicer to find a way to live with these rituals rather than purge them all?

I don't want to have big, unavoidable religious hullabaloos in our public spaces, but I think we've already proven that we know how to take a major religious feast and turn it into a secular party for the rest of us. Nothing mandatory, but nothing reasonable excluded.

Isn't it time we had a crass, commercialized, mass market celebration of Holi?
