The Humanist community of Portland is working to establish a non-religious, non-consumer based celebration built around the Winter Solstice. It is an effort to bring a more 'organic' celebration in which the emphasis is on our link to other people, the Earth and all it's creatures and life. Giving presents is quite optional and, if presents are given, it is preferred that one gives something of the personal heart; a poem, a song, something that one can sew or make, etc.. If something is bought it should be humble and of a one-of-a-kind, hand made, artisan nature.
We are having a concert event on Winter Solstice called DARKTOLIGHT. If you're interested in this type of celebration please feel welcome to attend. Suggested donation but no one will be turned away. For info go to : darktolightpdx.com
Hope you can escape the insanity!!!
