I removed the Notability warning, as I found a reference to HumanLight in the New York Times, which I added to the sources cited. I am sure there are other reputable third party references to this holiday, but it seemed to me that the New York Times should be sufficient. --Pordaria (talk) 02:04, 25 November 2007 (UTC)

I found the Notability warning in place again and removed it. Here are a couple more references: CNN NPR Joel Justiss (talk) 13:56, 16 February 2009 (UTC)

Suggested Rituals?[edit]

How about a section on suggested rituals? I have a yearly ritual of watching Monty Python's The Life of Brian on December 24th in celebration of Christmas. I could move that to the 23rd. The purpose, of course, is to remind me of the true meaning and origins of Christmas.

Other Issues[edit]

Much of the content added by was cut-and-pasted word for word from the HumanLight homepage. Specifically, the following content:

In Western societies, late December is a season of good cheer and a time for gatherings of friends and families. During the winter holiday season, where the word "holiday" has taken on a more secular meaning, many events are observed. This tradition of celebrations, however, is grounded in supernatural religious beliefs that many people in modern society cannot accept. HumanLight presents an alternative reason to celebrate: a Humanist's vision of a good future. It is a future in which all people can identify with each other, behave with the highest moral standards, and work together toward a happy, just and peaceful world.

This seems an evident violation of Wikipedia content rules, and so I have deleted the content.

I attempted to recast the copyrighted material into a properly paraphrased form. It's a start!

So, how long does an entry need to be before the "stub" line gets removed?

Fair use rationale for Image:Humanlight-logo.jpg[edit]

Nuvola apps important.svg

Image:Humanlight-logo.jpg is being used on this article. I notice the image page specifies that the image is being used under fair use but there is no explanation or rationale as to why its use in this Wikipedia article constitutes fair use. In addition to the boilerplate fair use template, you must also write out on the image description page a specific explanation or rationale for why using this image in each article is consistent with fair use.

Please go to the image description page and edit it to include a fair use rationale. Using one of the templates at Wikipedia:Fair use rationale guideline is an easy way to insure that your image is in compliance with Wikipedia policy, but remember that you must complete the template. Do not simply insert a blank template on an image page.

If there is other other fair use media, consider checking that you have specified the fair use rationale on the other images used on this page. Note that any fair use images uploaded after 4 May, 2006, and lacking such an explanation will be deleted one week after they have been uploaded, as described on criteria for speedy deletion. If you have any questions please ask them at the Media copyright questions page. Thank you.BetacommandBot 03:41, 6 June 2007 (UTC)
