How can atheists get angry at Christinas?

It seems an atheist wouldn't believe in anything supernatural and so wouldn't believe in human free will, which has a supernatural quality.
But if you don't believe in free will, you can't blame anyone for a decision he or she makes, or feel guilty for anything yourself. No free will would mean Christians aren't responsible for being Christian--They make a "choice" forced by environment and genes only......so why the blame and anger toward them. Or anyone for that matter.
Sorry if this is a tired question. I never get on these boards..

I am agnostic technically..in my heart and mind I am an atheist. But I do believe in supernatural or I really should say "the spiritual" I believe in an existence after death. I believe this based on my personal experiences with loved ones who have passed.
I don't see how free will is a supernatural quality. My beliefs are based on facts not emotion. The thing I have against belief in a god is that those people want to force everyone to live their way...yes they do. When they vote on same sex marriage and abortion they do it. Also a belief that is supposed to be based on love is so so intolerant.
