Join the fun of a holiday with no religious overtones!

Revels in the joint Humanist of Greater Portland's "Human Light" and Center for Inquiry Portland's "Dark to Light" Celebration on Saturday, December 18, upstairs at the Friendly House on the corner of NW Thurman and NW 26th, from 6pm to 930pm. This is a family-friendly event complete with a magician, Celtic musicians, group sing, children decorating a “Tree of Knowledge” and, of course, a potluck!

Come dressed in your holiday finery and be prepared to have a rousing good time!

            The celebration highlights humanism's positive secular vision. In Western societies, late December is a season of good cheer and a time for gatherings of friends and families. Many events are observed. This tradition of celebrations, however, is grounded in supernatural religious beliefs that many people in modern society cannot accept. This celebration presents an alternative reason to celebrate: a nontheistic vision of a good future. It is a future in which all people can identify with each other, behave with the highest moral standards, and work together toward a happy, just and peaceful world. Come celebrate with our friends at HGP and CFI!
