Did you just use "holiday" in the headline subby?  Don't you know how problematic the origins of that word are?

America is losing itself because a particular religious or governmental holiday name isn't specifically listed on a school calendar? Damn. If that's all it took we should've done this ages ago.

Why have days off at all?  Put the children in barracks and train them to be good workers for the collective.

The only day off should be the day we all strip nude and praise the leadership caste.

Problem solved.

Truthfully, I don't give a sh*t what day it is as long as I have a day off.  I don't celebrate July 4th, Memorial Day, Labor Day, New Years Day, President's Day, MLK Day, etc.  I just want my day off.

"Day Off" was the Meskwaki Chief who was cowardly and viciously murdered by the United States Regiment of Dragoons in order to silence him for opposing The Treaty of Payne's Landing.

Voucher programs and funding cuts are slowly suffocating public education in this country, so it's funny seeing Christians act like they're constantly the victims. You guys won.

"After an outcry at a raucous public meeting over a previous decision to rename Columbus Day as Indigenous Peoples Day, the board of education at a New Jersey school district decided to strip all holiday names off of the school calendar."

Okay, I have to say that I find this to be a very funny way of saying "F-U" to all those complainers.

Ain't it funny that the only religious holidays mentioned in TFA are Jewish holidays, and somehow people turned into lol dumb christians.  There's that acceptable bigotry that Fark loves.  Very edgy

As soon as someone of the Jewish faith complains about this, you might have a point.

Until then, it's just sickeningly-sweet Marshmallow Whine.

I'm all for an italian american day, on a different date just so you don't draw parallels, but like that is basically another St Patrick's day, only you replace a few drunken scuffles with murder and arson at the end of the night.

A nearby community no longer calls it Good Friday Holiday, but spring holiday.  So it's the first day of spring?  Noooo!  It's on Good Friday every year.

I wonder how many in this thread complaining realize that much of it was conservatives complaining about changing the name of Columbus Day and having Jewish holidays on the schedule.

They were the ones being "PC".

I don't like this, because it potentially allows racists to put racist holidays on the calendar while completely avoiding having to explain why they're holidays. I'm not a fan of the idea that "Day Off" could actually mean "Lynching Appreciation Day."

It's there own fault for having holidays that aren't on the same day every year, it's too damn confusing for the Christians in charge. Besides the big Christian ones already have *vacations* built around them not just this one day here one day there nonsense. AND the don't bother much after C&E with lesser days like Pentecost or Epiphany.
