It seems that one Air Force chaplain thinks that agnostics, atheists, deists, and freethinkers have celebrated a secret holiday since 2004 — the holiday of “Krisma.” Seriously. Here’s what Lt. Col. Tom Smith, chaplain for the 188th Fighter Wing of the Arkansas Air National Guard, wrote about this little-known holiday in an article on the 188th Fighter Wing website:
And, since 2004 there will be an increasing number of agnostics, atheists, deists, free-thinkers, etc., who’ll celebrate most of the elements of Christmas, but will focus on Kris Kringle, Rudolph, the elves, etc., as they greet each other by saying “Merry Krisma.”
WTF? I don’t remember seeing anything about Krisma in my super secret War on Christmas newsletter. Have I been missing this holiday for the last eight years?
