The What Of Who?

Quite ironic that Christmas is a religious festival but religion doesn't actually play any part in it for the vast majority and a YouGov poll, a total of 4% of Britons gave up God and all that holy jazz in 2016 leaving just 28% who say they believe in the big guy upstairs compared to 38% who call themselves atheist and don't.
The influx of Europeans from abroad swelled the Church congregations but Brits giving up on God has been on the rise since the turn of the century but 2016 saw the largest fall with the fall in bible carrying religio's is put down to a combination of terrorist attacks, controversial election results, and the deaths of a string of beloved celebrities.
The poll shows that 46% of 18 to 24 year-olds reject the idea of God or a higher power, while only a quarter of those aged 65 and over feel the same which shows that in the coming years religion will become even more of a rump and we may move away from all things religious, except Christmas of course in which case we will continue to celebrate the birth of Gods son by not actually mentioning or having anything to do with him.
