What is the history of Atheist Day?
Was it when Powers gathered us up and forced us to recant...

Recant:  Formally reject or disavow a formerly held belief, usually under pressure

I can't recant because I don't have a belief...

Praise the Lord, I have seen the light, thank you thank you, no need for all that subtly laid out metal paraphernalia, take the red hot poker out of the fire and put the kettle on, lets talk about Jesus  :)

Wow - we have our own day!  Think I'll celebrate tonight with a nice home made Massaman curry and some pinot noir!

It used to be April 1st but some atheists objected so it was moved. Personally I liked April 1st :D

I didn't know this was a thing either, and yeah, I wish they'd kept April 1st.  That's funny.

Is this going to be an annual thing? I don't know what I'm supposed to do on that day. Do I put up a tree and decorate it with jack o'lanterns?

It's been going a while. I don't know if there are any traditions yet.

Then I think the matter at hand fall to us to rectify. We could start by sacrificing babies or whatever it is we are alleged to do.
