Atheist Group Wants Christians to Skip Christmas

In Colorado Springs, Colorado and Raleigh, North Carolina, an atheist group purchased two billboards that suggest people should skip Christmas.

The billboards feature a smiling Santa Claus with the text: "Just be good for goodness sake. Happy Holidays!” American Atheists program director Nick Fish said “We want it to be either a little funny, or edgy, or provocative in some way, so when people see it, they stop and go, ‘Hey, wait a second, what did that just say?'”

Alexis Esselman told Fox 21 not everybody was on board. “It can be insulting to those who are religious and do celebrate it for Christianity and religion in general."

The group says it targets areas with a strong presence of evangelical Christianity.
