Gift Exchange

Published December 23rd, 2010 by Bobby Henderson

Gift-Exchange

So last Friday was the annual gift exchange / secret Santa at my work. Unbeknownst to me, my CFO had selected my name from the hat. Now you should know, this man is a moderate conservative and a life-long Christian and knows full well my adherence to Pastafarianism. He had me open my gift in front of the entire company. I opened it to find the Nativity you see here… complete with baby Flying Spaghetti Monster in the manger. What makes it even better is his description of what it took to chisel the baby Jesus out of the box. He says it finally broke free and the little bugger went flying across the room.

I guess it goes to show that level-headed, even-keeled people exist in all parts of the spectrum.

RAmen,

Dan

Your CFO sounds like a great guy.  What an uplifiting FSMas story.  Thanks for sharing.

FSMas Roundup

Published December 23rd, 2010 by Bobby Henderson

FSMas is approaching and I have not yet posted all of the Holiday decorations sent in.  So I’ll start posting them in batches.  Here are some wonderful ones:

NoodlyWreath2

NoodlyWreath1

I am a Pastafarian in Portland, Maine. This year I made a lovely Chrifsmas wreath and I thought I’d send in. I hope you enjoy! My wreath is decorated with Penne, Tri-Color Rotini, and some Annie’s Peace Pasta with yarn, buttons, wire and puff balls idol of the FSM Himself.

May His Noodliness be with you this Chrifsmas and throughout the year,

T.Christina Jacobs


FSMOrnament

I made this FSM ornament for a wonderful friend of mine. Here he is in all his noodley glory in our tree, next to a few other home made creations, and an official White House ornament ;)

Happy Pastamas, everyone!

wrapped

Hi from Oprahland [Australia]

Even faraway in Perth Western Australia we are touched by his noodly appendage!

To celebrate Christ[less]mas we made our own Holy Flying Spaghetti Monsters.

We are not worthy of his delicious goodness but offer up

this humble sacrifice of love and several minutes work by a father and daughter team.

Glory be his

Terry and Sophie Bell [13]

I just wanted to share some pictures from the recent Holiday celebration my friends and I held. :)

The first is a FSM cake decoration I made from sculpey.

Next we have tiny FSM chilling on the cake in his proper place.

Last two are our table. We decided to celebrate by symbolically eating his flesh and blood. And cake. Rum cake.

Play-Dough

I made a likeness of his Awesomeness, The Flying Spaghetti Monster, so he might take his rightful place on top the Christmas tree.  I used play-doh.

Greetings from Montana.  I thought I’d send in a picture of my lovely noodley tree topper. He even lights up. May his noodley appendages bless us all.

Merry FSMmas!

Knitted Tree-Topper

Published December 21st, 2010 by Bobby Henderson

tree-topper-knitted

My knitting needles, straight and true like spaghetti right out of the box, seemed possessed by His Noodly Goodness.  And now, he adorns our holiday tree as the tree-topper.  It is true that the rest of the tree is now bare — but we expect the Three Wise Pirates, together with some small Edams, Cheddars, and Swisses (the Little Baby Cheeses) to further adorn the tree before Sostice-tide.

Some more Holiday photos

Published December 14th, 2010 by Bobby Henderson

I am getting behind with the Holiday photos so I thought I would post several submissions here in one post. Behold:

fsmtreetop

I think I sent you a photo of my FSM tree-topper when I first made it a couple of years ago. But this year I added the meatball ornaments to complete the package, so I figured I’d send you an updated photo.

(Just below the FSM is the new James Randi Educational Foundation "Season of Reason" ornament, of which His Noodliness would certainly approve…)

Thanks for all your time and effort, and Merry Chrifsmas…

Ramen,

Kevin


Holiday_Cookie

My wife spent the afternoon making and decorating holiday cookies with the kids.  This year, amongst the dozens of cookies she made, I found this gem that she had hidden for me.

Tree_Topper

Even though we are essentially devoid of artsy craftsy skills, my wife and I managed to make this glowing FSM Tree Topper with basic supplies and an old star tree topper!  
I think he came out great!  

RAMen!

Mark and Antoinette

Please keep sending me your photos, these decorations look fantastic. Sorry if you’ve sent me photos and I haven’t posted them yet (I know for certain there are some great ones).  I am behind in everything.

Nativity showdown

Published December 12th, 2010 by Bobby Henderson

nativitypetitionhq

There’s some drama over a Christian Nativity scene displayed on the lawn of a county courthouse in Indiana.  The Freedom From Religion Foundation demanded the removal of the display on first amendment violation concerns and now locals are fighting.  It’s the same fight every Christmas and I get tired of writing about it.  

Now for the shock:

These Christmas fights bug me, honestly.   I am a supporter of the FFRF and of some of these secular and atheist organizations, but sometimes I am shaking my head and wondering what they are thinking.  You might get this scene removed but you do so much damage to our cause in the process.  You don’t think these perceptions matter?  Then what is this all about?  These Christmas fights make us look like such assholes, that’s all I’m saying. They are not reciting prayers in a state building or anything on that level.  A Nativity scene is barely religious, it’s like a cross necklace.   End of rant.

What do you guys think?
