Skepchick has a podcast up this week about the War on Christmas and what we’re doing to fight it. I contributed a 45 second audio clip for it.

How are you doing your part to fight the War on Christmas? Some suggestions:

*Defile the day with some sexytime.

*Screw ham or turkey and eat some pizza.

*God bless Barack Obama and his mythical global jihadist conspiracy over dinner.

*Put a disco ball on top of your tree. Or Buddy Christ.

*Start a blog thread specifically to make fun of terrible Christmas music.

*Buy your friends one of those shiny pro-atheist books and wrap it in the most Jesus-y paper possible.

*Spell the word “Evolve” on your roof in Christmas lights.

*Build a mock nativity scene populated with gay icons, famous feminists, civil rights leaders, or peace activists—anyone whose very existence causes the veins in Bill O’Reilly’s head to throb. Or hell, just fill it with atheists, and leave the crib empty.
