Picard's never really been all that Atheistic, or maybe he became more religious minded as the series went on.

I mean, in "Generations" his fantasy involved having a Merry Christmas with his family.
That's a good point although I suppose one could celebrate the giving gifts part while still being an atheist.


Christmas was originally a Pagan festival to brighten up the cold and lonely mid-winter. Catholicism hijacked it and stuck the birth of Jesus onto it to pacify the Pagan hordes. It is quite possible that Picard was celebrating Christmas as the Pagans did. I do (lights, big feast, family time etc).
