Yes, we can enjoy Christmas!
We can put up and decorate a Xmas tree, wrap and give presents and get the whole section of non-JW family round for a big turkey dinner with all the trimmings - yum!
We don't feel guilty about getting time off work and relaxing in front of all those cheesy Xmas movies (Baby's Day Out is still my favourite).
So if, unlike me, you want to frame your festivities in a story of a magical baby go right ahead, this thread isn't about belief bashing.
Whatever your definition of the 'true meaning of Christmas', mine is just as valid; It's the celebration of my freedom, my ability to choose how to live my life and who to share it's joys with.
So let this rabid, godless, antichrist of an atheist wish you all a very Merry Christmas! Enjoy the parties, booze, food, telly, sloth and indulgence but most of all give thanks for your liberation to live however the f*** you want to and to celebrate the very real hope that the rest of your loved ones will one day celebrate Christmas with you.
Love you all my dysfunctional bunch of ex-cult, weirdo brothers and sisters!
