Deegan said:Well it sounds as if we are in agreement then, I have never asked that the government endorse Christmas, but they have in a way, and I am fine with that. They made Christmas a federal holiday, and that obviously includes everything that this holiday is about.
I don't think giving people time off so that they may practice their religious/nonreligious beliefs means an endorsement of that particular holiday. It's the people that are celebrating, not the government, and that is where the important distinction is made.
