Hi <<First Name>>,

It's easy for nontheists to feel surrounded at Christmastime. But this week, we celebrate the Tree of Knowledge, an outstanding activist in Connecticut, and students fighting bad sex education.

We interview the President of Muslimish, a safe place for nonbelievers, and our own James A. Haught writes on how we are not surrounded as much as we think: there are atheists in the closet all around us.

Christopher Hitchens, the great secular orator and writer, died in a December month, so let's start a holiday tradition of watching him on YouTube.

Merry Hitchmas, everyone!
