It’s December, that happy time of year when people get frothing mad about the nonexistent “War on Christmas.
” In an unusual turn of events, the first salvo in this year’s skirmish appears to have been fired by American Atheists
, a 40-year-old advocacy group that's hosting a national convention in Memphis
this coming April. A billboard
promoting the event pictures a little girl writing a letter to Santa: “All I want for Christmas is to skip church! I’m too old for fairy tales.”
This seems like as good an excuse as any to link a terrible movie
about a jolly old elf locked in mortal combat with Satan.
