When is the Assumption of Mary?
The holiday is celebrated annually on August 15th.
The Feast of the Assumption of Mary is a very important day in the Catholic religion - it is even called the 'Easter of the summer' in some parts of Europe.
Also known as the 'Dormition of the Virgin Mary', it is the principal feast of the Blessed Virgin, the mother of Jesus Christ.
In countries such as Spain and Italy, it marks the start of the annual summer holidays, when many escape the heat of the cities to vacation on the coast or in the hills. Because of its date in the calendar, it is known as the "Feast of Our Lady of the Harvest" in some parts of Europe.

No. Yes I'm an Atheist but that celebration has absolutely nothing to do with me. It's akin to celebrating Easter bunny day. THAT I like. It actually makes sense. This virgin thing?
Come on..give me a break. It like suspending gravity.
People have a right to be wrong, as long as they do little or no damage.
