Happy Birthday to us, and thanksgiving!

This year we’re celebrating religious observance, with religious books, films and events celebrating religious holidays.

But we’re not done yet.

Here are a few of our favorite things to do, as well as some of our least favorite things, that we think you’ll enjoy: 1. 

New Year’s Eve, New Year’s Day and New Year´s Day celebrations in New York City: There are a lot of New Year celebrations going on around the city, and we’re planning our New Year celebration to be as inclusive as possible.

We’ll be celebrating the New Year in the same way we celebrate Christmas, which means we’re also celebrating New Years Eve and New Years Day with a special fireworks display, with some of the best views of the city.

The New Year is just a few days away and we hope you’ll join us in celebrating it!

We also plan to celebrate with a festive parade and a lot more fun. 


Christmas Day celebrations at the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New Jersey: We’re going to be having our own New Year fireworks display this year, and the museum will be hosting a festive, candlelit celebration on December 25, 2018.

New York is home to over 300 museums and art galleries, and a New Year at the Met is a must-see experience.

We hope you’re excited to join us and celebrate this special holiday! 


Katherine Johnson’s book, My Story: An Atheist and the World in the Eyes of God: A Life in Faith, will be released on December 15.

She’s the author of books like  The Big Empty: How the Universe Works,  and  The Atheist Inside the Big Empty, both of which were published in 2018.
