I don’t wish people Merry Christmas, but have a nice day.

I’ve now gone multiple years without directing the words “Merry Christmas” at someone in the traditional sense of wishing a “Merry Christmas.” The societal pressure to conform is disconcerting. It’s often overlooked how taxing it is to live in a world dominated by the literal belief in an imaginary entity. I hope anyone that reads my views with a sour thought can have empathy for my position and conceptualize how uncomfortable it is to constantly navigate a society of adults with literal adherence to obvious myths. I will never fully experience a world governed purely by facts, but I endeavor to get as close to that ideal as possible, living authentically according to my understanding of reality.
