Why is it that every holiday (with the exception of military/historical holidays) are all Christian? Christmas and Easter (Good Friday or Easter Monday, generally) specifically . . . I understand holidays such as July 4th, Labor day, and the like. Those are important to the nation, but as far as religious observances are concerned, I think more than a few people have been left out.
Why don't we get off for Halloween, one of the most important holidays of the Pagan community?
Why don't we get off for Hanukkah or Yom Kippur, pivotal Jewish holidays?
Why don't we get off for Eid-Al-Adha (Muslim),Krishna Jayanti (Hindu), or Vesak (Buddhist)? These holidays are major in their religions . . .
Has anyone else ever wondered this?
