Humanists like to have ceremonies as much as religious people. Ceremonies do not have to be religious or supernatural. People who engage in ritualistic activity need not assume that such activity will have some sort of magical or supernatural result. Ceremonies are not essentially religious. People take part in ceremonies all the time and not always in religious contexts. Traditionally, religion may have provided the main framework for organized rituals and ceremonies, but this does not mean they have a monopoly upon them. ‘Humanist ceremonies’ looks at the meaning of rituals to people of religion and humanists, and considers humanist weddings and funerals.
