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.
