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.

Well I spend a bit of time trying to figure out the colors. I saw that pretty much every color is used somewhere even multi colored ones. I liked scarlet red because of the "A". For black it was mostly because the very first scarlet A I saw had a black background. (I briefly mention this on facebook page). I thought the colors red and black look pretty sharp together. I also thought that even though for some it might have different ideas come up as the ribbon gets more popular atheism will be the only thing to come to mind. Kind of like red does for AIDS. I also like the "A" but wanted someting more universal and something someone can make for themselves without having to buy it at a special shop. Hope that clears it up....also don't forget that atheists have had many deaths just for the sole fact they were an atheist.
