How Atheists Handle Death: Holiday Edition

Was sitting around the table eating a delicious, godless holiday meal with my loving, godless family when my mother noted that the place mats were made by my late grandmother.  I then mentioned that I spoke of grandma when I spoke at Grand Valley State in November when I was asked how atheists deal with death.  My father then said, “Asking how we deal with death after finding out there’s no god is like asking how we celebrate Christmas after we find out there’s no Santa Claus: pretty much the same.”

I love my family.
