This collection of smart, funny essays, of course—short works by 42 resolutely secular-minded geniuses about how to survive (and even enjoy) the holiday season…without feeling the Christmas Spirit move you. Editors Robin Harvie and Stephanie Meyers have gathered writers, celebrities, comedians, and scientists to deliver essays ranging from the hilarious to the reflective to the charmingly absurd in The Atheist’s Guide to Christmas, a perfect gift for the Pastafarian who has everything, the Scrooge who wants nothing, and anyone else interested in the diverse meanings that Christmas can hold.

Editorial Reviews

Penthouse
“Stuck on a holiday gift for your favorite atheist? This book will fill him with Christmas-like cheer.... If there’s one overarching takeaway...it’s that atheists have a sense of humor.”
Technorati.com
“[E]ntertaining and enlightening… The Atheist’s Guide to Christmas is not only for atheists…nor is it an anti-religious rant or deep philosophical treatise. In essence… a good gift for anyone with a sense of humor.”

Dawkins alone made this book worth it. Nevermind the crazies who are giving this 1 star just to spite atheism. It's funny, and a welcomed respite from the endless cacophony of hymns and ethnocentric carols.
