have you ever heard of Holy Innocent day?

I just heard about this day. It seems bizarre to me. Does anyone celebrate it?

  • "Hmm, so they celebrate herod slaughtering the children on bethleham."

    No, obviously this day isn't a celebration. It is a memorial of the children that were murdered by Herod in order to protect his throne from the new born king. It is to memorialize the sacrifice not to celebrate it. But I think you probably know that and I have to wonder why you need to mischaracterize it, is your bias so strong that you can't be open minded? Or do you just enjoy spreading hatred?

    Different faith traditions memorialize these children on different days.

  • Yes, I heard of it. As was previously stated it's not a "celebration" but a rememberance. I've always thought of them as souls who watch over the victims of abortion.
