Dawn Owar has invited the secular community to a gathering. Dave went to this the last two years and had a great time. From the Facebook event:
"Not everyone celebrates Xmas, but there's no need to sit home alone feeling sorry for yourself while the Christians of the world gather around their living room trees when you can come to Bodega for cocktails with your fellow Non-Celebrators!
"Food/Drinks are your own responsibility so bring your wallets and have a safe way to get back home.
"Anyone who doesn't celebrate or isn't celebrating Christmas this year is welcome to turn up and come and go 7pm to close. This party is open to absolutely everyone so please invite all your Humanist, Jewish, Atheist and Non-Christian friends!!
"*Note: People who do celebrate Christmas are also welcome. Whether you have no family in town and you just want to hang out, or if you feel like swinging by after the family is in bed.
"*Also Note: This gathering is for people who AREN'T celebrating. People with family obligations dont need to apologize for not being able to make it. This party isn't for you anyway."
