Humanist and Atheist Christmas Cards for Freethinkers

by TerriRexson

Do you need atheist or humanist Christmas cards. Here's an excellent selection of my favorite season's greeting cards for the rational.

Atheist Christmas Cards

Atheist Christmas cards, eh? Well obviously we're talking about Christmas in the secular sense - the popular name for the festival that falls in mid-winter in the Northern hemisphere. 

We could go with Festivus or Winterval, but for me Christmas has never held any religious meaning so I don't feel any need to drop it. 

Christmas means getting together with family. Buying gifts for people you love. Stories about Santa (we're not keen on pretending they're true.) The wonder of little kids seeing Christmas lights. Mince pies. Christmas song (yeah, even the religious ones, I'm sentimental like that.) Sending Christmas cards to cement friendships and keep in touch with distant friends. 

That's the kind of Christmas I love as an atheist. No need for the supernatural. 

A Meaningful Atheist Christmas Card

I rather like the Be Good for Goodness Sake card. The phrase has been used in atheist campaigns and also appears in a Christmas song (Santa Claus is Coming to Town.)

It refers to the fact that atheists aren't being good because they fear punishment or because they are being watched and judged. They are good because it is their human nature. 

A Christmas Card Celebrating being Rational

I like the idea of celebrating reason. For many atheists and humanists, Christmas is a time of reflection and thinking about what's important. 

And for many of us science, rationality and reason are very significant. A very worthwhile message. 

Happy Giftmas Darwin Xmas Card

Darwin Christmas Card

Ah Darwin. Darwin and his great work has great significance to many atheists. Charles Darwin represents modern science. 

Who can resist Darwin dressed as Santa? And then the Happy Giftmas line honestly acknowledges what Christmas is really about for most people. You can be cynical about it if you like, but for me giving gifts to those you love is a lovely part of Christmas.

Evolution of Tradition

Atheist Christmas Cards

Evolution Christmas Card

This is a nice festive red card featuring a jolly Santa. With a nod to evolution and its importance to atheists. 

I really like the name of this card 'Evolution of Tradition' - that's what Christmas is all about to me. Evolving a tradition that has been celebrated for thousands of years to something that fits modern society but with a nod to the past. 

Happy Festivus Card


Festivus is a secular holiday celebrated on December 23 as a way to celebrate the holiday season without participating in its pressures and commercialism. It was created by writer Dan O'Keefe and introduced into popular culture by his son ...

Many atheists will appreciate the cultural significance of Festivus. 

Merry Christmyth Card

Funny Atheist Christmas Card

Merry Christmyth! Well it's mildly amusing at least!

This is the kind of card you send to another atheist who will get the joke. 

Custom Atheist Christmas Card

Didn't find exactly the atheist Christmas card you were looking for? No problem, why don't you create your own. 

It's quick and easy and you can use your own image or photo and add your own phrase or slogan. You'll have your own unique atheist Christmas cards this holiday season.

While I am not an atheist, I enjoyed seeing this selection of cards and understanding a bit better the viewpoint of those who are. I especially appreciate the humor.
