At least with Christmas you can expect to make a bit of coin on the side.

I think not having to listen to Atheism Carols in every mall and elevator for 8 weeks of the year is just fine.

How are Christians like the Borg?

1. Resistance is futile.

2. We'll add your culture and technological distinctiveness to our own.

3. We got the best cubes! Revelation 21:16-21 (Actually, I don't think the city is a 'cube', probably more pyramid like, with taller building in the center. Space elevator? Who knows...)

Christianity and Islam at least have in common that they were spread with war, torture and murder.

Pretty much, if you just cut out the religion and go with some fat guy in red delivering presents, its just a giant ode to consumerism. Last time I was in Shanghai they had tons of mall Santas and the religious population is quite the minority. We've exported our consumerism abroad. I never understood the whole war on X-mas thing, corporate America has pretty much peeled the religion aspect back to that 3 minute speech Linus gives as to the true meaning of x-mas. All the other Hallmark specials like the claymation Rudolf story or the Grinch are pretty neutral. Sans a nativity scene we might as well just start slapping corporate sponsors onto St Nick. I plan on doing what I do every year though and herald in the 25th with the Arkham Carolers:
