Illuminati

And a song, because I can't resist

# God rest ye, Unitarians,
Let nothing you dismay!
Remember that there is no proof
There was a Christmas Day
When Christ was born is just not known,
no matter what they say,

O, Tidings of reason and fact, reason and fact,
Glad tidings of reason and fact.

# No wise men traveled from the East,
The journey's far too long.
There were no shepherds in the fields,
The time of year's all wrong;
We don't believe in angels;
That rules out the angels' song!

O, Tidings of reason and fact, reason and fact,
Glad tidings of reason and fact.

# Our current Christmas Customs come
from Persia and from Greece,
From solstice celebrations of
the ancient Middle East.
This whole darn Christmas spiel is just
another pagan feast,

O, Tidings of reason and fact, reason and fact,
Glad tidings of reason and fact.

# We're too sophisticated to
Believe in tales so old.
We know that human avarice means
Too much bought and sold;
We only celebrate because
This season is so cold.

O, Tidings of reason and fact, reason and fact,
Glad tidings of reason and fact.
