> Even the most hard core atheists among us know all the lyrics to christmas songs.  We do, right?  No matter how hard we try to not know those words, we know em anyway.  We have been mind raped, even the radical Presbyterians, and they are not happy about it at all.  There is nothing we can do.  

Yes there is.  It's easy - one can simply ignore Christ-mass (I've done it for 25 years).  And If I didn't grow up in a cultural Christian household to begin with, there would be nothing to ignore.  Even with the secular components that have been added to Christ-mass, many "other" religious groups do not do Christ-mass.

funny stuff. <snip>  ... I shoulda been a writer for Saturday Night Live.

Yes, you would definitely be able to liven things up for even that jaded crowd! (Although, you know, in these difficult economic times the SNL people have simply resorted to stealing stuff ... observe how much interview footage they've managed to lift almost verbatim from Sarah Palin's interviews earlier this year ... ;).
