Letter: How to enjoy the midwinter festival

From Mr Glyn Edwards

Sir: I do not know where Mary Kenny gets her drab view of atheists from ("Meanings of Christmas", 28 December).

Our household has just had a splendid time as numerous adults and children ate, drank, exchanged presents, laughed, played games, reminisced and enjoyed themselves from 24 December to New Year's Eve. We have had a typical midwinter fun festival with much companionship and no supernatural connotations. Christmas is, in fact, a wonderful time to be an atheist because you are immune from the feelings of guilt which the so- called spiritual leaders among us like to insinuate among the revelries.

Yours cordially,

Glyn Edwards
