Book Discussion: The Battle for Christmas

Think there's a war on Christmas now? Consider our Puritan forefathers in Massachusetts--they banned it completely!

"The Battle for Christmas" by Stephen Nissenbaum is a Pulitzer Prize nominated work that takes a historical look at the Christmas holiday. It uncovers its pagan roots and shows how it has been transformed into the modern festival of consumerism.  Please grab a copy and explore the quirky traditions of Christmas, then join us as we celebrate the "reason for the season."

The book discussion will once again be led by Russ F.

    This was the meetup I've been waiting for, a chance to flex my intellectual muscle. If I was in anyway undecided before, I'm on solid footing now. This is where I've needed to be for a long time. :-)

    I'm looking forward to the discussion. Just a reminder: if you plan to purchase the book, please consider using the IAF Amazon store front. A portion of the proceeds from your purchase will benefit IAF. http://astore.amazon.com/iowaatheiandf-20

I decided to start Reno Motorcycle Riders Group because I wanted to be part of a group of people who enjoyed my passion... I was excited and nervous. Our group has grown by leaps and bounds. I never thought it would be this big.
