Question of the Day #69: (un)Holidays

Do you think atheists should get their own holidays? How so? Any specific ones in mind?

Well, we already have Christmas, New Year, Easter, Thanksgiving... do we really need another one?

Holidays aren't intrinsically important- unless there's something that you want to commemorate. Atheists are free to commemorate whatever occasions they want- one of the benefits of atheism is the freedom to celebrate or not any holiday for any reason.

That said, there has been some growing popularity in recent years of celebrating Darwin's birthday (and the closest Sunday as "Evolution Sunday"), and I can remember celebrating "Mole Day" with my high school chemistry teacher, but those aren't necessarily "atheistic."
