God in details

• What a solipsistic and, frankly, nonsensical article from Tim Stanley (Irish Independent, December 23).

As an atheist I have absolutely no problem with anybody celebrating any holiday they want. Like Richard Dawkins, I enjoy all Christmas traditions, carols, decorations, gifts, goodwill to all; even Christmas Mass is nice.

However, on almost all of his points, Mr Stanley is plain wrong, and it is a little sad that he thinks that unless Christmas is about Jesus it isn't "really" Christmas.
