We had this discussion at lunch today and it left many contiplating the future of holidays in this country,.....it started when someone commented that out of the 50 or so "holiday cards" we have hanging up not one says anything about Christmas even though thats why we traditionally have this time off.
So with all the politically correct discussion about weather or not you can or should say "Merry Christmas" or even acknowlege any type of "religion" affiliated with time off from work or school during this holiday season, do you feel someday we will lose our paid vacation days and school breaks because we have been conditioned not to view the holidays as a "Holy-day"?
Where will this end?
With companies and schools eliminating "paid holidays" and gaining a few work days during the year, and schools working though the breaks traditionally associated with Chistmas and Easter?
Will there be a movement to get back to tradition and reason for us to have these days as holidays? and drawing a line in the sand over individual beliefs?
Will we someday have a custom holiday schedule based on our belief system?
and What are the atheists going to do if they get no time off?
Just curious if anyone else has thought about this?
