I don't think it's a question of atheist vs. Christian Christmas, but rather
than some right-thinking Christians believe the practices of other
Christians are too secular, too Santafied and not sanctified enough ... so a
Christian Christmas is one to be nostalgic for! BTW, the Wall St Jr op-ed
page had a good article yesterday called "A Brief History of Christmas" to
be found online at
