When ignorant Kansas State Board of Education members mandated equal teaching time for evolution and intelligent design, Bobby Henderson wrote the Board a satirical letter suggesting that his theory of the Flying Spaghetti Monster (FSM) also receive equal educational time. His interpretation of life's origins gave rise to FSM worshippers, who call themselves Pastafarians.

Pastafarians celebrate the winter holiday season with a holiday called Holiday. Without a specific date or specific requirements, Holiday allows each Pastafarian to celebrate it when and however desired. (Some even celebrate Pastover and Ramendan.)

The non-denominational greeting of “Happy Holidays” that is quickly replacing non-secular greetings in popular culture gives weight and credence to the Pastafarian movement.

Once touched by His Noodly Appendage, you will understand.
