Quickies for Christmas

No Virginia, There Is No Santa Claus, by Greta Christina

‘Twas the Night Before Reason, via The Friendly Atheist

“What an odd question . . . I adore Christmas. The fact that I know that Christianity’s origins lie more in Paul of Tarsus’s mental illness and [Emperor] Constantine’s political savvy than in the existence of the divine has no bearing on my ability to embrace this age-old festival of giving, family and feasting.” – Tim Minchin

And since we’re talking about Tim, here’s his Christmas song, White Wine in the Sun:

Merry Christmas!
