2011 is winding down! I want to thank you, our loyal readers, for supporting Humanist Network News and the American Humanist Association this year. Thanks to you, over 35,000 subscribers receive HNN each week, and thousands are reading, commenting, and sharing articles with others. Thank you for helping to increase awareness of humanism and our growing community of Americans who are “good without a god.” What issues or stories do you want to see covered in 2012? Write to us at

Whether you celebrate Christmas, Hanukkah, Kwanzaa, HumanLight, Winter Solstice, Festivus, all of the above or none at all, I hope you have an enjoyable time surrounded by family, friends and food! From all of us at the American Humanist Association, we wish you a safe and happy holiday.
