Holy days

Pastafarians have wonderful religious ceremonies. We celebrate every Friday as a holy day. Prayers are concluded with a final declaration of affirmation, “R’amen”.

Around the time of Christmas, Hanukkah and Kwanzaa, Pastafarians celebrate a vaguely defined holiday named ‘Holiday’. Holiday does not take place on a specific date so much as it is the Holiday season itself. Because we reject dogma there are no specific requirements for Holiday. Pastafarians celebrate Holiday however they please. We also celebrate Pastover and Ramendan.

We view the increasing usage of “Happy Holidays”, rather than more traditional greetings, as support for Pastafarianism.

Talk Like a Pirate Day, September 19th, is also one of the most special days on the Pastafarian calendar. It is a day we can all celebrate the heritage of Pastafarianism by honouring the Pirates, the very first Pastafarians!

But why only have a few Holy Days in a year? Every day is special, and for 2016, Ned Galagher has made a special Pastafarian calender, so we have something to celebrate every day!
