Can atheists truly enjoy Christmas?

Rev Nick Park of the Evangelical Alliance Ireland isn't surprised that many atheists connect with Christmas in a profound way.

Christmas is almost upon us.

Those with no faith will largely spend it with family and friends, while those who believe in God will do the same – but they’ll also be celebrating the birth of Christ.

Ciara Kelly is herself an atheist, and absolutely loves Christmas.  She finds it hard to believe that believing in the birth of Jesus could bring any more joy to the holiday.

To discuss, she was joined on High Noon by Reverend Nick Park, himself Executive Director of the Evangelical Alliance.
