One of the answers on the Atheist Holiday question made me think. Why is it that only SOME religious based holidays are nationally recognized? Shouldn't we add the religious holidays of all nationally recognized religions to our calendar and whatnot rather than just a few? I have had issues more than once taking a day off for religious days because my bosses didn't believe it was really a holiday... I'm sure I'm not the only one who has had this issue.

I don't think business want more paid holidays for employees. Many religious holidays that used to be recognized are no longer. Hospitals in our area don't recognize Easter as a holiday and many of them are Catholic. DH says this is because managers don't work on Sundays anyway so why pay the employees more for that day?
IMO most holidays are formed around what works best for the majority. In the northern part of my state all schools are closed on the first day of hunting season.
