Following the Principles of Pastafarianism (step 3)

Celebrate Pastafarian Holidays. Like any religion, Pastafarianism has its own yearly holidays. These special days call for joyous celebration, humble reflection, and special devotion to the FSM. A brief calendar of the most important days in the Pastafarian calendar can be found below:

  • Every Friday: Friday is the sabbath day for Pastafarians. However, it doesn’t require any sort of special effort — Pastafarians may celebrate this day by “drinking beer and relaxing.”
  • Ramendan: A month of sacrifice during which Pastafarians eat only pasta and noodle dishes after sundown. Start and end dates vary from year to year.
  • Pastover: Pastafarians enjoy a feast of pasta, dress as pirates, and participate in a ritual passing of the eye patch. Date varies from year to year; usually in March or April.
  • Talk Like a Pirate Day (September 19th): Self-explanatory. Pirate costumes are recommended but not required.
  • Halloween (October 31st): Pastafarians are obliged to dress like pirates.
  • “Holiday:” Pastafarians celebrate a vaguely defined Christmas-like event in late December (no specific date is given by the church) any way they like, but especially with pasta, pirates, and beer.
