I have something I like to call, my opinion, on certain things.
Easter. So, we all know this is a Christian Holiday, as is Christmas, St.Valentine’s Day,and St. Patrick’s Day…yet it never ceases to amaze me how many people disregard this, or make claims opposite to this fact. BUT, they are the first people that want the “holidays” off to spend with their families, want the stat pay if they work it, because it is a holiday after all, or want to make the most of the holiday and celebrate it, with all the commercialized tinsel and glitz that accompanies it.
Make no mistake, I am not saying it’s wrong to NOT believe in the Christian viewpoint regarding these holidays, but really, a little respect or at least leave it note-worthy in conversation. The plain fact is, we would NOT have these holidays without Christianity, believe it or not. You don’t have to be a believer, you don’t have to be among the millions who celebrate Easter by attending mass on Good Friday, or Palm Sunday service, but don’t submerge yourself in public ignorance and celebrate without the slightest acknowledgement of why the holiday actually exists in the first place.
No Christianity,No Christmas, No Easter, No Happy Heart Day, No Green Beer Day. We would be working on these days, sans celebration with family and dear friends, and know no different.
Where else did these traditions, celebrations, and holidays come from?
Just an opinion on the obvious.
