Surviving the Holidays as an Atheist

Openly Secular has released a helpful guide to surviving the holidays as an atheist. It covers everything from coping with religious family members to whether or not you should even celebrate the occasions:

Regardless of your ethnic heritage and cultural background, holidays are a source of meaning that reminds us who we are and where we come from. Therein lies a dilemma for those who don’t adhere to a faith tradition. All around us are celebrations in the making — centered around beliefs that we don’t share. What’s a nonbeliever to do? Many of us struggle with how to react to and participate in holiday celebrations.

It’s an excellent resource for anyone who’s new to dealing with these questions.
