Stand up and be counted!
If Mary and Joseph could go to the trouble of travelling from Nazareth to Bethlehem for a census because their ancestors had lived there a millenia previously*, surely atheists can participate in this census by Atheist Alliance International. Numbers matter!
* Note - there is not a shred of historical evidence to suggest that the Romans ever required people to return to their ancestral homes for a census. Christian apologists like to ignore this fact. The census described in the Book of Luke was clearly a literary device employed by the author to get Mary and Joseph from point A to point B.
