January 1st - NEW YEARS
This is something that all can celebrate with no religion needed :)
February 12th - Darwin Day
Charles Darwin was born on the same day as another famous free thinker, Abraham Lincoln (Feb 12, 1809). We are approaching the bicentennial of his birth and the sesquicentennial (150th) of the publication of the book that changed the world, the Origin. Darwin day events celebrate the wonder of science and the glory of human achievement.
February 14th - Valentines Day
March 20-21, Northern Hemisphere - Vernal Equinox & Easter (first Sunday after the full moon following the vernal equinox) * hmmm could that be Pagan? *
Time of rebirth
April 22nd ~ Earth Day
June 21st Northern Hemisphere - Summer Solstice
Also known as midsummer, this is the day with the longest period of daylight (and my favorite day!).
September 23 Northern Hemisphere - Autumnal Equinox
The first day of spring is a time of rebirth, autumn is a time for slowing down and reflection. Like the Vernal Equinox, the Autumnal is a moment when daylight and dark are balanced at twelve hours each. Temps start to decline and daylight retreats. This is a great time for a dinner to celebrate the harvest and to recognize the changes associated with fall.
Fourth Thursday in November - Thanksgiving
Time to express our thankfulness to each other, good fortune and life itself.
Fun to note that the Puritan Pilgrims were pursuing the kind of freedom of religious observance to which secularists should be devoted, fleeing the harassment of religious persecution in England and heading to the New World.
