Secular holidays

Secular holidays

If your local atheist group is looking for something secular to celebrate, another excuse to gobble down a burger and toss back a cold one, this looks promising:
NOW, THEREFORE, I, BARACK OBAMA, President of the United States of America, do hereby proclaim September 17, 2009, as Constitution Day and Citizenship Day, and September 17 through September 23, 2009, as Constitution Week. I encourage Federal, State, and local officials, as well as leaders of civic, social, and educational organizations, to conduct ceremonies and programs that celebrate our Constitution and reaffirm our rights and obligations as citizens of our great Nation.

But let's not forget that September 19th is yet another day worthy of attention and celebration: Talk like a pirate day.
