Holiday Toast

My wife and I are probably having my parents over for diner on Christmas, so I was sitting and remembered about how my dad likes to joke about saying grace in the name of fun. He always says it jokingly and is really just trying to get my mom to lighten up about the issue a little and realize my non-belief is fine and that the fact of me being a good person is what matters. He never actually says grace at hope or anywhere, so he actually has no intentions of saying it or joining in. But it…

Traditions in Atheism

I generally dislike the label 'holiday.' 

Being someone who is atheist, I stand on general purpose. 

'Holiday' comes from 'Holy Day' or a religious-centric word. 

I prefer the much more P.C term of 'observation day.' 

Maybe I'll insist on calling it 'obserdays.' 

Obserdays. I like that. It sounds a lot like Absurdities. And of course it is a little tongue-in-cheek mockery of theistic traditions. 

Cultural memes. Religious memes. They differ from…

holiday fun

Just curious if anyone else here has any fun or weird easter traditions. Or any other holidays for that matter. A couple of my atheist friends and I have a “7 deadly sin-a-thon”. Basically we try to commit all seven deadly sins over the easter weekend. We always begin by making a lamb cake, which is a cake that is the shape of a lamb. We use red cake so that when we cut the heart out it’s color appropriate. Then we proceed to eat a lot of food and drink, which takes care of most of the sins…

The WAR on CHRISTmas!

I'm so sick of hearing about "the war on christmas" and seeing any

non-christian (or anyone willing to stand up for any non-christian)

being vilified in the news. Tonight there was a segment on one of my local news affiliates (WTAE Pittsburgh) about a nativity scene being moved from in front of the borough building in a local town after one woman (bravely) wrote in and asked that it be moved. It was moved a whole 20 yards from it's original… Continue

Christmastime?

I have a confession - I love the holiday season. I love Christmas' blatant commercialism and Santa Claus and all of that. One of my by-the-book atheist friends, however, was quick to make fun of me for wanting to get Christmas lights for my house. Is it really such a conflict being an atheist but enjoying the holiday festivities?

The Truth About St. Patrick

St. Patrick is considered as the Patron Saint of Ireland. There are many, though, in Ireland that hold him in disdain. These people will never celebrate his legacy or life. It has been stated that St. Patrick rid Ireland of all of its snakes. Scientists have found that Ireland had not had snakes since icebergs surrounded the island. What could then be meant by the old legend?

Before Christianity began to spread into Ireland, the Druids were the leading…

The Origins of Valentine's Day

What is Valentine's Day to you? A special day with your sweetheart? An excuse to wear red and pink? A chance to eat chocolate all day? A day to exchange gifts with the special people in your life? Just another Hallmark-Holiday?





For me personally it's a day to do something special for my sweetheart. I do also feel that it is a bit too… Continue
