Also some obscure Jewish holidays and other "holidays" from primitive cultures are recognized but not one recognizing the glory of our founders. We can't have our student body looking up to White men! Libtardism at its finest.

National Holiday's ...still have school.
Religious Holiday's ...off.

Should be the other way around considering the majority of American's live in America whereas **** religion. Flawless logic.
User avatar #27 to #11 - Crusader (02/20/2013) [-]
Well no, you get religious holidays off because well, most people are religious, and because they happen to fall right in line with perfect timing for breaks from school and work.
You have Easter in the Spring, Christmas in the winter, thanksgiving everyone in North America gets off in the fall, and there really isn't anything in the summer because that is when you NEED to work.

I love having religious holidays off. It's great having that tirade of Jewish holidays right at the beginning of the school year.
#89 to #33 - whymewhy (02/20/2013) [-]
way back when i was in school the only religious holidays i recall getting off was christmas but since that falls during winter break its hard to count it or not.. on one hand you get it off cuz its during winter break but on the other hand winter break is there for the purpose of christmas as far as i know. now with that said i suppose you could also say you get easter off too then since it falls during spring break (i think it does anyway, i forget, too many years)
User avatar #93 to #89 - ButtonFly (02/20/2013) [-]
Breaks are often designed to line up with holidays like that. Winter break had Christmas, Kwanzaa and Hanukkah and Spring break had Easter.
Which holidays a school has off really lines up by the majority of the people tied to that religion. I live in an area with a lot of Jewish people so I profited largely from their holidays during my school years.
A friend of mine went to school the same time as I in a different state that's heavy in the Christian faith so he had no Jewish holidays off.

I envy you. My school district never let us off on any Jewish holidays.
User avatar #38 to #33 - mynameislego (02/20/2013) [-]
Fine but if we're going to take jewish and catholic holiday's, why not every religions holidays, why not acknowledge them all? America is a melting pot so why only acknowledge the majority religious groups?
User avatar #42 to #38 - ButtonFly (02/20/2013) [-]
Because the majority offers a better blanket to satisfy most people and if America would give days off for every solitary holiday for every single religion then we wouldn't have very many working days left.
They don't celebrate every holiday for the major religions either. Ash Wednesday doesn't get a day off nor does Purim. They really only choose the major ones that's observed by the majority of that religion.
It also varied from state to state on what you celebrate.
New York has a lot of Jewish residents so they get a lot of Jewish holidays off.
Texas, being a mostly Christian state focuses on Christian holidays.
Louisiana, being one for Mardi Gras actually gets two or three days off for that holiday alone.
It really varies in every region to satisfy the majority, they can't appease everyone. Though all across America, schools and businesses alike are known to be lenient and offer time off to individuals who do observe holidays that the better part of the state doesn't, provided it's important enough for them.
Plenty of businesses in my neighborhood shut down in observance for certain Muslim holidays.

Thank you for writing all of that, it's truly appreciated and helps clarify my point. Since you cannot observe all religious holidays for the reasons you stated as well as many more, that's why there are national holidays. It's a blanket holiday that covers all races, creeds, etc...and should be observed by all americans. Whether you believe in our government or its politics/practices or not, at the end of the day, black, white, yellow, jewish, muslim, christian etc...all living on american soil are americans, and deserve a day off and for it to be recognized and accepted.
User avatar #52 to #44 - ButtonFly (02/20/2013) [-]
And they're all given one day off, or more if necessary. I don't see how completely abolishing religious holidays for the sake of being indiscriminatory would help anything. American's are very proud of being different and have a lot more to celebrate than just their history.
I'm not saying history isn't important, I'm merely pointing out that religion is just as viable a reason as any.

umm ya i would say the majority of Americans live in America, its kinda what makes them Americans. based off reading your entire comment you should make sure that you don't miss any days at school, hell you should even come on on saturdays
User avatar #92 to #88 - mynameislego (02/20/2013) [-]
you're a ******* idiot. "umm ya i would say the majority of Americans live in America, its kinda what makes them Americans." >implying that people with different nationalities do not live in america? shut the **** up, this thread conversation was over 3 hours ago and you have nothing notable to add. Also, I have B.S. and Masters.

I'm an atheist and I love religious holidays

it's an opportunity for me to do whatever the **** I want
User avatar #37 to #19 - mynameislego (02/20/2013) [-]
except to enjoy the services of any of the businesses that also acknowledge that holiday.
User avatar #14 to #11 - Ruspanic ONLINE (02/20/2013) [-]
No, because religious holidays matter much more to people than national holidays, and an overwhelming majority of Americans are religious. And school is canceled on most national holidays as well.

It was an opinion based on incorrect assumptions.
That's as close to wrong as an opinion can be.
User avatar #39 to #21 - mynameislego (02/20/2013) [-]
there was no incorrect assumption on my part, simply a belief or rather lack there of a belief in religion. and if we're going to recognize the two dominate religions why not acknowledge the others that exist in america, we're a melting pot and there is a lot more than christians and jewish people here.
User avatar #47 to #39 - Ruspanic ONLINE (02/20/2013) [-]
The incorrect assumption he was referring to was that school isn't cancelled on national holidays. It often is, at least for public schools (Labor Day, MLK Day, Veteran's Day).

It's not a matter of acknowledging or celebrating religions, but rather accommodating them. New York City has a large Jewish population, so its school districts cancel school on major Jewish holidays so that the Jewish kids don't have to miss class. The school district I went to school in did not do this, because we didn't have that many Jews. In fact my old school district didn't have any religious holidays off except Christmas, which was part of the winter break.
User avatar #49 to #47 - mynameislego (02/20/2013) [-]
I'm from New York and I'm not a Jew. For the rest, refer to comment #44 above.
User avatar #57 to #49 - Ruspanic ONLINE (02/20/2013) [-]
It's not about celebrating diversity - that's frankly unimportant.

Think of it this way:
Let's say your school of 1000 is a microcosm of the city, and ~100 (10%) of your classmates are Jewish. Of those, let's say 50 are religious enough to miss school on Rosh Hashanah. If you don't close the school on that holiday, you're going to have at least 50 absences for religious reasons, and the Jews who did come to school have to forgo observing their holiday. Therefore it makes sense to cancel school.

On the other hand, I grew up in Omaha, which is less than 1% Jewish. In the same situation, maybe 4 or 5 kids out of my hypothetical school's student body of 1000 would actually miss school for religious reasons on Rosh Hashanah. Those 4 or 5 kids can inform their teachers in advance and make up whatever they miss, with little added burden on the teachers (who would only have to accommodate 5 absences instead of 50). It's probably not worth closing the school for everyone to accommodate such a small minority.

That's why these decisions are left to individual school districts.

lol, ya but as a michigander who has lived in texas for a little while those kids are safer getting the day off cuz of a light dusting of snow.. southerners on snow is scary for a couple reasons 1. they don't follow the road rules in good conditions, throw snow in with reckless behavior and you are asking for trouble. 2. this one is a minor issue but they don't salt the roads for ice and snow they just throw some sand on it 3. they are too busy looking at "all the pretty snow" and don't pay attention. 4. these people have drive through liquor stores add snow and booze to go and you got some issues.
