The “Atheist Christmas Coloring Book” Tells the True Story of the Holiday

If you’re looking for a fun stocking stuffer or gag gift for an atheist in the coming weeks, this coloring book by Rick Marazzani does the trick. Rather than perpetuate a myth, this book explains the origins of Christmas along with the various legends that went into it.

Old traditions and new provide unlimited opportunities for freethinkers to enjoy the season. Solstice, Yule, Saturnalia, Hanukkah, and other traditions were blended centuries ago to form Christmas, and embellished with fairy tales and fables into the rich secular modern celebration we have today. Values like joy, peace, sharing, and celebration are not limited to one faith or culture in December. The foundations of Christmas may be mythological, but the Spirit of Christmas is universal. Keep the Merry, without the Myths

While the book is on Amazon if you’d like a paperback copy, Marazzani is also giving away PDFs of the book for free on his website. So have at it. (And hats off to the illustrator, Claire Viskova.)
