If you have ever wondered what to get an atheist for Christmas, well then you probably don’t understand what atheism is, but if you still insist on getting said person a present, this is the gift you have been searching for. The Atheist’s Guide to Christmas is a collection of essays written by atheists to help support fellow atheists through the holiday months. The essays range from fact checks on the Star of Bethlehem to an ode to non-denominational holiday songs, and from a guide to shopping for the feminist atheist on your list to how to have an eco-friendly Christmas. The essays provide a humorous look at what it’s like for everyone who doesn’t wish to celebrate the birth of Jesus with novelty gifts and cookies. It would provide entertaining insight for any believers and non believers alike.

Go ahead and get it for your bah-humbug friends. Maybe they don’t believe in Christmas, but everyone believes in getting presents.
