The Holiday Story

Eventually, I kinda figured it would occur...it was just a question of where.

This past month....folks around in New York area....of the Islamic religion...stated this petition of sorts to add two Islamic holidays to the local New York City public school calendar.

The holidays? Eid Ul-Fitr (the end of Ramadan) and Eid Ul-Adha (the end of the Hajj).

So far...you can't find any real politicians who will say in public that this is a wise idea that they can support. The public sentiment? Well...you can't really find any other groups who are standing up to suggest another holiday. The hint is that if this did eventually occur...they'd have to subtract a current holiday or two.

The problem is that various religious groups throughout America....could eventually come up and demand to add their own holiday. Heck, maybe even the Scientology guys would put L Ron's birthday up as a national holiday and then what?

So settle back and simply watch as this unfolds.
