10 October

Secular spectacular

If you’re decidedly non-Christian, there is plenty of Christmas you can indulge in:

  • feasting
  • wassailing
  • crackers
  • Christmas cards[1]
  • presents and Father Christmas[2]
  • secular Christmas songs (See 14 July)
  • non-religious decorations (like baubles and tinsel)
  • gingerbread houses
  • snömys (like mince pies and sleigh bells and snowflakes)
  • Christmas games and frolic[3]
  • “How the Grinch Stole Christmas!” (of which more later)
  • peace, love and joy

Christmas is for everyone.

Almighty large quantities of tinsel.

[1] But stick to pictures of plum puddings, rather than babes in mangers.

[2] The original version of whom would rather you left him a bowl of rum punch rather than a mere cookie and milk.

[3] Although tippity-run is out if you count cricket as a religion.
