First, hats-off to the Secular Seasons website. I copied-and-pasted their list of secular holidays. I'll add links as I have time. I'll also be linking to discussions in this group.

Oooh, good idea. Thanks!
I'm looking for a link or button to add this to my personal calendar. Haven't found it yet.
Thanks! That worked.
Can you make it so I can add dates to the calendar?
Discordian dates. Esp. St Tib's Day, February 29.

And what happened to ITLAPD, September 19?
What is ITLAPD?
If we didn't have real pirates in the world, I'd probably think ITLAPD is funny. Maybe it should be retitled "International Talk Like The "Pirates" on a Disney Theme Park Ride Day"

However... that these guys showed up to protest Fred Phelps and crew... THAT was funny!
Actually, I thought the reference to Pirates was for the Spaghetti Monster. There's a lot of pirate references in connection with the Spaghetti Monster.
Right, but where did people get their idea for FSM minions? I suspect from that Disney ride.
Could someone add atheist solidarity day? It's June 21. More info at:
http://www.facebook.com/group.php?gid=300231402267
and www.atheistsolidarity.com
Done!
I have two unrelated questions here, and I hope nobody's offended if I ask them.

Why are the colors red and black part of the atheist ribbon appearing on those links (what's the history behind those two particular colors to be associated with atheism), and why is a ribbon as a symbol being used also (look at the ribbons shown on www.atheistsolidarity.com)? I read recently that at (I think it was) Wimbledon earlier this week (or last week?), the black female player there (sorry, I can't think of her name, but I do know that she plays competitively at the very top of the tennis world along with her sister), she recently wore a black and red lacy tennis outfit, and one of the comments about that from someone was that red and black colors were associated with lingerie, so she needed advice on better color choices. So if those indeed are colors associated with lingerie, possibly atheism should pick other colors? Also, the ribbon is associated with things like loss of life, like if someone is missing, or breast cancer or AIDS. Maybe use of a ribbon causes other people to ask questions, and that obviously would be the upside, but the ribbon seems to have associations that maybe we'd want to reconsider?
