I hate to diapoint you Gideon, But the majority of "atheist" Swedes encourage their children to beleive in gnomes who leave presents. They dress their daughters up as witches who carry copper kettles and fly on their broomsticks at least once a year. And every midsummer they put these same children on their shoulders and dance around a phallic symbol singing a song about frogs. Nothing wrong with this of course. Just that I can't see how it is more "rational" than singing somgs about frogs at Pesach.
