Jan 6th, the Epiphany, traditionally marks the end of the Christmas season. Last week while I was musing about the significance of the Epiphany and why Christmas, a religious holiday, is also a public holiday and I came to the conclusion that the justification for it is that Christ is honorable. Many other public figures deemed to be honorable are similarly recognized. Most humanists would no doubt consider Christ an honorable man. They may have some doubts about deification and Easter as a public holiday but Humanism and Christianity do have much in common.
