I kinda like the christmas atmosphere and ignore the supernatural stuff, (if I send christmas cards they're sans religion) but this sounds like a better idea, if the winners are good I'll probably order some if I can.
CALLING ALL NON-BELIEVERS: Express yourself in a HumanLight Design Contest
HumanLight is a holiday celebrated around December 23rd specifically to acknowledge reason, family, friendship, and other shared, secular values of humankind. To learn more, visit the website: http://www.humanlight.org
The HumanLight Committee is hosting a HumanLight Holiday card and ornament design contest for secularists of all ages. Contestants should design an artistic expression to positively address these questions or some aspect of the HumanLight holiday.
What do we have to celebrate during the winter holiday season? What do you hope for in the future? What's the Humanist view/perspective?
