Holidays, minus God
Americans who are unaffiliated with any faith tradition are the fastest growing religious group in the country. With the holiday season upon us, we asked iReporters: If you're atheist, agnostic or a nonbeliever of any kind, how do you celebrate the holidays? The outpouring of submissions we received were thoughtful, heartwarming, engaging and, above all, cheerful -- In other words, perfectly in tune with the holiday season.
iReporters in the U.S. and across the world who are nonbelievers shared dozens of stories. Read them and share your own.

A wish for the world and for each an every one of us.
As Women we have been taught that it is not okay to say "No". Think of how many people you feel you have to buy presents for; how extravagant you have to be when decorating your home; how many commitments you've made to cook or bake; and how many gatherings you have agreed to attend. It can be so overwhelming and cause a great deal of stress. What would happen if you just said "No"? Wouldn't it be great to renegotiate and set some boundaries for yourself?
