Yes, this holiday shares the date of the Islam event Ramadan.
This is for several reasons:

  1. ย The pun is just too easy and pastafarianism loves that!
  2. The pun involves ramen. Noodles. Nuff said.
  3. The tradition of Ramadan has very interesting roots/ purposes/philosophies
  4. Solidarity with a fellow religion.
    Pastifarianism is all about wondering about the what why and how of religions or no religions, both!
  5. The idea of fasting is very recognisable and applicable to severable relatable subjects. Especially since ramen or noodles, or any starch-heavy food is often associated with any situation at all where people are forced into a restricted lifestyle.
  6. All of the above points come down to empathy.
    Empathy with any situation that requires a form of restriction.
    It makes us think. Think about the why and how of the restriction.
  7. Thinking is good.ย

Ramendan in the pastafarian style, which is the church of the Flying Spaghetti Monster, uses the pun of ramen and Ramadan to use it’s very applicable concept of “restriction” to raise awareness about a relatable form of restriction that we often find in the society that we, as anyone at all, can find somewhere in the society we, anywhere at all, live in.

Ramendan is not meant to be offensive.
Ramendan takes the philosophies of Ramadan and makes them into a funny, but also very relatable item.
According to the idea of pastafarianism, the view on religion if combined with the why of religion combined with a healthy dose of social psychology and applied to the relevance of that time.
Trust your gut. Philosophically.

Examples:

-Anyplace struck by dramatic cuts to any kind of budget

  1. Like anywhere on earth now we experience inflation, especially those who live near or below poverty lines. One of the ways to cut costs is to budget on foods.
  2. Students. School is expensive. Some students have to invest heavily to get the education they need in life. Too often they need to budget on food.
  3. Anywhere on earth where people have a really hard time to survive. They have no choice but to budget on foods.
