"I have been instructed by the FSM to create a new spring holiday.<br />

It shall be called Feaster, and it shall occur according to the Holy<br />
Feaster Algorithm:<br />
1) Add 75 to the Common Era year for which you wish to find the date<br />
of Feaster; e.g., for 2009 the result is 2084.<br />
2) Lop off the first two numbers of the result and subtract by one.<br />

3) Divide the original result by the Divine Divisor and discard any<br />
remainder; e.g., 2083 / 19 = 109.<br />
4) The date of Feaster will then occur on the closest Friday to the<br />
109th day of the year, in the year 2009, which happens to be April 17,<br />
2009.<br />
<br />
This is the True Date of Feaster, although Feaster may be celebrated<br />
during the Spring on the day when those participating feel the<br />
strongest pull of His Noodly Appendage.<br />
<br />
The faithful must dress as pirates and celebrate by preparing a<br />
spaghetti feast that they might eat of His Noodly Appendage(s).<br />
<br />
They shall then hide "meatballs" (footbags), decorated festively in<br />
basil green and tomato red, around the house or yard and send children<br />
out to hunt for them. Once found the children should invent saucy ways<br />
to play with them."<br />

Richard Hendricks adds:<br />
<br />
"Alternately, they may hide tiny pirate chests full of booty and give<br />
participants maps leading to some of them, while others remain secret.<br />
Chests should either be hidden in plain sight, or buried under a<br />
clearly marked X."<br />
