Event Description

Celebrating and remembering the life of Christopher Hitchens on the date of his birth, April 13th.  Let's lift a glass of Johnnie Walker Black, with a splash of Perrier, to the Bard of Atheism. If you smoke, a standard cigarette will do but a fine Cuban Cigar would be a tribute.

Happy Hitchday, everyone!  I've already registered next Hitchday for those who wish to RSVP -

Ah, distinctly I remember it was in mid December,
When we lost a fellow member who fought to make gods no more.
But in his books I find no sorrow - only hope for a saner morrow
From his quotes I seek to borrow, borrow to make gods no more.
For a bright and briliant future in which gods are no more -
Banished, at last, forevermore.

In the meantime God really is not great

and this too

Salman Rushdie tweeted on hearing of Hitchens passing that "A great voice falls silent". I can still hear him. I am unable to read his books without hearing his voice speak the words.How lucky I am !!

When you are sipping JW Black you need a few irreverent and witty quotes.

Brilliant idea

Of course I might be drinking LaPhroaigh, and it might be the 15th., but my intentions are honorable.

Of course I am up for Hitchens/Jefferson day!

I've been hoping that everyone would share the event with their Atheist friends on facebook and G+.  I share it out every few months, but I don't want to spam.

I wish I could think of a way of getting more people here to sign up.  :(

This time I will start training for my JWB a few months in advance. Always good to prepare early!! Thanks for the invite Heather.
