I found the below article from one of yahoo groups.
“Atheists now have holiday.”
“Is there really a holiday for Atheist?” I wondered.
Then I read the article.
If Christians and Muslims as well as other major religions have holidays, Atheists had their own holidays too. It’s unfair if they don’t have. Better read it. It is good. [^^,]

Florida Court Sets Atheist Holiday
In Florida, an atheist created a case against the upcoming Easter and
Passover holy days. He hired an attorney to bring a discrimination case
against Christians, Jews and observances of their holy days. The
argument was that it was unfair that atheists had no such recognized
The case was brought before a judge. After listening to the passionate
presentation by the lawyer, the judge banged his gavel declaring, "Case
The lawyer immediately stood objecting to the ruling saying, "Your
honor, how can you possibly dismiss this case? The Christians have
Christmas, Easter and others. The Jews have Passover, Yom Kippur and
Hanukkah, yet my client and all other atheists have no such holidays."
The judge leaned forward in his chair saying, "But you do. Your client, counsel, is woefully ignorant."
The lawyer said, "Your Honor, we are unaware of any special observance or holiday for atheists."
The judge said, "The calendar says April 1st is April Fools Day. Psalm
14:1 states, 'The fool says in his heart, there is no God.' Thus, it is
the opinion of this court, that if your client says there is no God,
then he is a fool. Therefore, April 1st is his day. Court is adjourned."
You gotta love a Judge that knows his scripture!
"Rejoice in the Lord always! I will say it again: REJOICE!" Phil. 4:4
That's it guys. From now on April 1st (April Fool's Day) is also "Atheists Day".
