Our Society’s annual end-of-year celebration known as “Humanist for the Holidays” happens on the three weekends from Dec. 18 through Jan. 2. We begin with our interactive and inter-generational Winter Festival on Dec. 18, with music, wood fires, and warm treats.
This is followed by our Humanist for the Holidays platform on Sunday, Dec. 26, when we celebrate the season with personal stories of holiday joys and traditions, both religious and secular. Bring pictures if you have them!
The festivities wrap up with the Do Tell! Diner on Sunday, Jan. 2, a true-story potluck in which we’ll share food and food-related holiday recollections. Bring a dish and a story that goes with it, as we create a multi-sensory event with delectable tastes to accompany delightful tales. Come and share that special comfort food that got you through a tough time, the family recipe that reminds you of a beloved grandparent, the dessert that sparked a romance, or even a stovetop disaster! Bring those memories to life for all of us by preparing (or buying) a special dish, and sharing what it means to you.
Last year, the coronavirus made our celebration virtual-only. This year, thanks to modern technology and the safety precautions put in place (masks and proof of vaccination for indoor events), we will be able to enjoy a hybrid celebration at the meetinghouse and on Zoom. Whether you join us safely in-person, or remotely via Zoom, we hope you’ll share in the warmth of our Humanist holidays.
