I hope everyone is having a great Holiday season and a merry FSMas. Here are some of my favorite festive things this year:
Tyler’s pipe cleaner ornament
Bianca’s FSM tree
Martin’s FSM emblem topped tree
Laura’s fingerpuppet ornament
This dude sent me a Holiday greeting claiming to be a Pastafarian and I believe him.
Lily made this beautiful Holiday card.
 A note on Holiday: some years ago we noticed there was a shift in the way people expressed greetings this time of year — less and less Merry Christmas and more and more Happy holidays. We concluded that these people were probably Pastafarians wishing people a happy Holiday – referring to our winter celebration also known as FSMas.
The Tampa Tribune featured the FSM Holiday display in today’s paper, front page.
The sign says “A closed mouth catches no noodly appendages.”
And here’s the Christian nativity display that started all of this:
What do you think — next year, will the Florida Capitol allow any religious displays?
Thanks to Jay Nelson for the photos.
Great news! The Florida Capitol building has endorsed our religion by allowing an FSM Holiday display on its grounds.
The Florida Capitol building just made a move that Sarah Palin is likely to interpret as a hostile affront in the so-called “war on Christmas,” approving a religious statue from the Pastafarian group of their deity the Flying Spaghetti Monster to be included in the Capitol’s holiday displays.

Happy Holidays everyone! I want to share a collection of my favorite displays this season.
But first, check out what is to my knowledge the first ChrisFSMas song, composed by Rade – who, incidentally, makes his home in the same town (Hallein, Austria) as F.X. Gruber, who composed Silent Night.
Now that you’re in a Holiday mood, here are the displays:
Possibly my favorite this year, here’s Scott and Jeanette’s knitted tree-topper.
It would not feel like ChrisFSMas without a festive and historically accurate Nativity scene – this one, courtesy of Dmitry:
Here’s an ornament spotted on Dmitry’s Holiday tree:
Abbey found this Holiday stocking at her house:
And the FSM perched atop her tree:
He was spotted on a number of other trees as well:
He was also spotted in Holiday lights in a window:
and here He is in a yard:
Here’s Mark from New Zealand’s wreath:
And He was seen in a number of Holiday treats:
Happy Holidays everyone!
Holiday is the most important celebration of the year not only for Pastafarians worldwide but indeed, for everybody. It is the one day of the year where we are all Touched by His Noodly Appendages and we commemorate…well, nothing at all really, but that isn’t the point. Understanding this, the Most Irreverend Minister Tracy McPherson of the Pennsylvanian Pastafarians and her Noodly Flock have come together in request for a display celebrating Holiday.
Here is the link for the original speech given by Tracy:
And the second speech:
Being of course the world’s largest and most prominent non-religion that has a deity who is truly edible and Full of Complex Carbohydrates, there has been much media coverage of the request for Holiday displays:
Unfortunately, the County Commissioners have not been Touched, and the request has been refused. However, the battle for reason continues. Tracy is pushing to get an appearance on the Daily Show with John Stewart, and you can show your support by emailing [email protected]
Here is an update pasted from Tracy’s facebook page, Evangelical Pastafarianism, on the refusal:
“UPDATE: West Chester, PA – Despite many phone calls and emails of support, as well as statements by Pastafarian supporters for Holiday Tree and from atheist supporters for the Tree of Knowledge, commissioners Farrell and Costello rejected t
UPDATE: Pastafarians can also enjoy the feeling of being evangelical by visiting the splinter church at www.evangelicalpasta.com
This is a picture about the celebration for the new year with my daughter, teaching her about the great miracles and love monesvol is willing to give to whoever wants to believe in him.

I’m happy to see that our religion continues to spread around the world. Welcome to our friends in Colombia.
I posted my husband and I’s tree topper on my Facebook account. To my surprise, a devout and particularly humorless Christian liked it. Clearly, His Noodly Appendage touches those who don’t even seek it. May we all receive a generous helping of His slow cooked grace this ChriFSMas season.
