Last Friday I celebrated Carl Sagan Day by baking apple pie from scratch, and watching an episode of Cosmos.
That got me thinking about the other secular “holidays” out there. I’m not counting the patriotic holidays, because that will vary from country to country, and many of them are too god-soaked anyway. But what does my secular holiday calendar look like?
Well, first there’s the Pastafarian Calendar:
- Talk Like a Pirate Day (9/19)
- Halloween (10/31 – also good for dressing like a pirate)
- Holiday (from just after Halloween to mid-January or so)
- Friday (every Friday)
- Darwin Day (2/12)
- Pi Day (3/14)
- Star Wars Day (May the Fourth)
- National Day of Reason (First Thursday in May)
- Carl Sagan Day (11/9)
- Festivus (12/23)
- All the Solstices and Equinoxes, of course, because Science!
I feel like I don’t have them all. What am I missing?
