Yeah, I've always taken exception to folks that say they're spiritual but not religious... I'm sure I don't know what that means, and reasonably certain they don't either.

Yeah, looking at the Columbia UU website it seems like they do a lot of that, all "spiritual" instead of "religious".

I've been to a UU church before, but I couldn't get past the mythological stuff, i.e., "spirit" instead of "god", etc. Just my two cents.  ;)

I've never attended a meeting either - weekday nights are just not good, but I know weekends are out for our skydiving-instructor meeting organizer. (Do you still do that during cold weather months?)
 
One more thing about these winter holidays - I read in the book "Parenting Beyond Belief" that there's a movement called "Kristmas" - celebrating gift giving, tree-decorating, lighting up your house, cookie-baking etc. in a secular sense. (After all, those are all fun things that have nothing to do with supernatural dieties! :)
 
Speaking of which, any other atheist parents in the group? I have a 16 month-old son. 
 
Also, anyone attend any Unitarian Universalist churches? (I HATE calling it a "church"!) Friends of ours attend UUC in Towson & told me most of the members seem to be atheists. I like the ideals & would like my son to be educated about religion (without being indoctrinated into it!) so we've started attending.

Heh - I've never made it to a meeting, and I spend the holidays with friends and family...  I'm just adding my two cents to the conversation.  But I'm actually just realizing that you and I have met before, Kevin...  

At any rate, I would be more apt to attending if there were one in Howard County or southwestern Baltimore County...

So does that mean you'd be up for a meetup?

That is fantastic, it's a shame I can't be bothered to send out holiday cards...  And I was thinking the same thing - I've effectively re-co-opted the holiday for my own purposes at this point...  What better excuse to share a home-cooked meal and quality time with the family?

Well, it really SHOULD be "our holiday" - didn't the Christians steal it in the first place? ;) American Atheists has cards with a globe that say "Axial Tilt is the reason for the season."
 
My husband & I will be getting together with family, so we wouldn't be attending a meetup.

SO, first things first; there will be no meeting this month due to the meeting date falling on the day of the holiday. Next, want to hear from yo as to whether or not we would be interested in having a meetup on 12/24. After all, it's really not our holiday, but the culture makes it difficult to avoid. So, what do you think?
