So this is a really old thread, but clearly is not closed for discussion and I love the idea of jedi holidays, I think we really should have some, so here is my input.

I agree with those who have said not to name any days after fictional characters, it makes us look like a silly joke religion full of people who are not taking it seriously.

On that same idea though, I do think it is a great idea to celebrate lucas or the films release or making may a month long observation for jedi's to reflect and to celebrate, and maybe having a few bigger days inside of that month.

Celebrating TOTJO's founding would be great for TOTJO's members definitely.

I do think we should leave christmas and stuff alone. I will always celebrate christmas with my family, not as a celebration of christ but as a celebration of our family and a tradition, but I would love to have that day be also a celebration of my own faith as well.

I hope this thread becomes active again, I think the idea is fantastic.

Since it's up, may I make a proposal?

Last year my friend suggested a tradition for January 1, to be used across the entire community. Basically the idea was to get people to do a form of "meditation relay". It would start with the first time zone the earth enters into the new year and then continue until the earth reached full circle. If you have more than 24 people(say 48), you could divide the time into 30 minute incrimates. This was for the entire community to participate in.

What do you meditate on? I don't think she really made it anything specific, but then again last year was the only time she managed to drum up people to participate. It would mean sacrificing your drinking/party time, but it's more a volunteer thing anyway.

Perhaps we could jump on board with this idea? Maybe even solidify the idea of what we could meditate on (The Force's Connection to Everyone)?

My preference would be for planetary alignments and solar progression events, much like Pagan rituals.... to celebrate resonance and relationships.

Which can be found in our FAQ, as listed, or the discussion thread(s) can be found in this section...

Thank you for this reminder, I believe the date of International Earth Day, according to earthday.org is April 22..

Part of the clerical training asks you to find the posts and look for the reasons why we choose them....

I question the Earth Day date....

I hope I helped... if not, please continue...
