Winter Solstice/Human Light Party

  • Dec 21, 2013 · 4:00 PM

Join us for a Winter Solstice/HumanLight Open House! Come for as long or as short as you like. Hosts will be providing beer and a few finger foods. Bring an appetizer or a dish to share (feel free to bring own favorite beverage too,if you like).  Please remember to post what you plan to bring when you respond.  There will be a brief HumanLight ceremony at approx. 7:00 pm.  

In many cultures, late December is a season of good cheer and a time for festive gatherings of friends and families.  As part of this holiday season, HumanLight is a jovial holiday that is entirely secular – not based on any supernatural religious beliefs or theistic concepts.  The HumanLight holiday offers an alternative reason to celebrate during the December holiday season by illuminating Humanism’s positive secular vision of reason, compassion, hope, and humanity.

Come celebrate and promote a positive vision of a better future — a future in which all people can identify with each other and try to behave with high moral standards — a future which people can build by working together for a happy, just, and peaceful world.

    Big thanks to Pat and Elisabeth to opening up their house to us and giving us some perspective as well. Plus I think your Happy Humanist was just fine...who amongst us can say we are perfect. Tanya and I had a blast.

    If anyone gets lost. Look for the big-head humanist decoration on the side of the house.

      Deidre, I sent it to you. It should have gone to the email address that was used to set up your Meetup Account. I'll copy and paste it to you as a private Facebook message. We are looking forward to seeing you both!!

      Hi Elisabeth. I read Pat's response first and asked him what settings. From your response and looking at the site I think I've figured it out. Can you check? Thanks, Kevin

    A very sensible review of the "War on Christmas" news hawking from the leading historian of religion in America: includes links both to Mandela stories and the Xmas kefluffle.
