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:

I spent this Christmas with my family at my Catholic grandparents’ house. Little did they know, while they had a ceramic nativity scene displayed beneath their tree, a tree topper in honor of His Noodliness sat atop ours.

Cheers,

Office_Holiday_Decorations

My mostly Christian of coworkers made this wonderful image of his noodlines for me so that I would not feel left out during the season.  He is made from office and break room supplies.  I will forever cherish this.

Wow, this is genuinely touching. Is it just me or have Christians embraced the FSM this Season? 


Buck and family’s display:

Buddha rejoicing as sweet little 8 pound 6 ounce baby Jesus is touched by HIS Noodly Appendage.

That Just Happened! (and by "just" we mean many many years ago and by "happened" we mean without a single scrap of verifiable evidence.)

Under the ChriFSMas tree

This stuffed FSM miraculously appeared under our ChriFSMas tree to spread His Good Word. As you can see, my husband was very happy about it :) It took several woman-hours to bring His Noddliness to life, but the expression on my husbands face was worth it! ;)

Enjoy!

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

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.

Merry FSMmas!

happy Holidays everybody

Published December 14th, 2016 by Bobby Henderson

The Holiday[1] season is here again. How to Spread the Word of the FSM? Here are a few ideas:

• The Holiday e-Card machine is up and running again this year.

You can send a festive Holiday e-Card to your friends and family with a personalized message here. Below are a few of the designs:

 

 

FSM Ministry Nominations

Also — this season, if you know someone with impeccable character, ready to serve as a spiritual leader, you can nominate them to the FSM Ministry.

FSM Ministers will receive Lithograph Paper Certificates and PVC Minister’s ID cards, and will be added to the official registry. You can order here.

 

 

Or how about a festive FSM tree (this one courtesy of Trevor)

Here’s Tarun’s tree:

Amy spotted this amazing display on her neighbor’s house in Everett, WA:

[1] A note on Holiday: years ago, we noticed there was a shift in the way people expressed winter greetings — fewer “Merry Christmas’s” and more “happy holidays”. We concluded that these people were most likely Pastafarians (albeit many of them in secret) wishing people a happy Holiday – referring to our winter celebration Holiday, also known as ChriFSMas.

The war on Holiday

Published December 14th, 2015 by Bobby Henderson

spaghettimanger

This has become my favorite Holiday[1] tradition: a government institution hosts a Christian-themed display, then non-Christian groups demand a display as well, then the Christians who thought a government building was an appropriate place for a religious display get worked up by the “war on Christmas”.

fsmholidaydisplay

The one in the news this year is a DMV in Florida with a baby Jesus display. Here’s an article in RawStory talking about it.

And a great quote by a Christian activist:

“My hope is that the Christ in Christmas is louder than a wood display and some figurines,” Pam Olsen, president of the Florida Prayer Network, explained to the Miami Herald.

“I have been pondering this for a while,” Olsen said. “The racial tensions and mass murders, the shootings at the Planned Parenthood and in California – something is very wrong in our country. We need to step back and say we need to stop. Let the sound of the Christ Child bring hope, joy and peace instead of dissension.”

I will admit that I have a small (very small) amount of sympathy for the Christians who get upset that they can’t just put a baby Jesus in the DMV and keep the “wrong” groups out. I recognize that they are more comfortable in a world where everyone shares their religious views (or keeps quiet about their own). I think this is less about promoting Christianity and more like a nostalgic yearning for simpler times. And I’ve always liked Christmas displays – even if they’re a little Jesusy – I’ve never found them too bothersome.

That said, once these Christian vs non-Christian display stories hit the news, I think it does become a highly charged issue, and the Christian warriors come out speaking loudly about the war on Christmas. This I find ridiculous, and I am very thankful that we have so many Pastafarians who stand up for our rights. I can not wait to see the FSM Holiday display this year.

Purchase the Gospel

An elaborate spoof on Intelligent Design, The Gospel of the Flying Spaghetti Monster is neither too elaborate nor too spoofy to succeed in nailing the fallacies of ID. It's even wackier than Jonathan Swift's suggestion that the Irish eat their children as a way to keep them from being a burden, and it may offend just as many people, but Henderson puts satire to the same serious use that Swift did. Oh, yes, it is very funny. -- Scientific American.
