The Atheist Secret of Christmas

Have you heard the phrase “the first Noel” or the French “Joyeux Noël?” Did you know that the word Noel is a hidden message for atheists? Think about it . . . Noel means “no El,” El being one of the many names for Yahweh.

So when people refer to “noel” which they think is a synonym of Christmas, they are signally to atheists that there is no god! Ha!

Okay, yes, I am messing with you. There is no truth to this. But . . . but, I think it might be fun to use when messing with those who claim there is a War on Christmas. Those folks already have a persecution complex, so this would fit right in with their existing paranoias.

Enjoy the holidays!

  1. I don’t think those folks have the philological skills to see “no el” does not mean “no god”. After all they are the people who believe “santa’ is anagram of “satan” (technically correct, but nonsensical from a linguistic/etymological point of view.)

    • You have a point. But trolling is a lot like fishing. Not ever fish takes the bait. This is just one more shiny lure to use in the pursuit of please when trolling the “persecuted” religious.

  2. Very clever, Steve, and I for one am convinced.
    I suspect the word was originally part of the birth narratives in gMatthew and gLuke which was why gJohn omitted the birth tale entirely.
    However, little did he know ….
