Promoting Science, Reason and Humanist Values in the greater Pittsburgh area.
Our Biggest Festivus Ever!
The Pittsburgh Freethought Community hosted it's annual "Festivus for the rest of us" party on December 9th, and we had the largest turnout ever!
Traditional Festivus activities included the Airing of Grievances and the crowning of two-time champion in both "Feats of Strength" (thumb wrestling), and "Feats of Mental Agility" (Rock, Paper, Scissors) - Meg Dippold, along with food, friendship, and conversation. Attendees could also gather around the Festivus Pole to stand in awe of it's high strength-to-weight ratio.
The Pittsburgh Freethought Community sponsored a a prominently labeled and located holiday tree decorated with ornaments representative of our support of science, reason, humanist and atheist beliefs, and social justice. The tree was decorated on December 7th, and is located in Roosevelt Park, Arnold, PA. Ornaments ranged from models of the atom to evolve-fish symbols to likenesses of Frederick Douglass. In addition, a Festivus pole was erected next to the creche and the Festivus tradition described on the holiday traditions signboard. Our thanks to Marie Schaub for making this possible!
