Episode 27 – The Longest Night

Happy New Year!  The year’s end is a time for being with the people most important to us, saying goodbye to the past, and looking forward to the future.

Celebrations around this time of year can sometimes be difficult for nonbelievers, especially without the received ceremonies and traditions that our religious friends can rely on.  That’s why the Secular Hub opens up with its own traditions and parties.

In this slice-of-life recording, Jesse gets several Hub members to open up about traditions, volunteerism, and other topics important to those being interviewed.  It’s also a party, and you can hear all the fun and merriment that Hubsters are known for!

Episode 7, Nonbelief at the Holidays

Nonbelievers celebrate the holiday, too.  Well, some of them do.

Secular Hub board member Chauncey Williams leads a discussion with several other members about the meaning of the holiday season in their lives.  What follows is a friendly and lively discussion filled with laughter.  Covered are stories of Christmases past, thoughts on what the holidays mean to nonbelievers, and how we celebrate (if we even choose to celebrate at all).

Warning: this episode features nostalgia, good feelings, and unabashed joy.  A fair bit of cynicism, too, just to keep things balanced.

Mandatory Christmas Viewing discussed in this episode:

A Christmas Story

It’s a Wonderful Life

Non Christmas themed episodes of Futurama, Valentine’s Day episode and Independence Day episode.  Good stuff
