    My reference, from my first post forward, was the original Thanksgiving, not the one so declared by a President. My facts are correct.
    Building block or stumbling block.... choose.

    There's a laundry list of things that are annoying about Christmas. Frankly, it's a commercial holiday these days. People can't be offended by Christmas for religious reasons because America has already done a bang-up job at removing the religion aspect out of it.

    Get your wife a homemade card and hold her while you sing Christmas carols in front of a fire instead of hocking out your wallet for jewelry. See if you get any holiday nookie.

    Alright but when it was declared by a president when every state recognized it as a holiday it was in 1868 after the things that had happened to the native's and not so very long ago may I add , had taken place that they were thanked for helping the people take their land also for killing half of their population. As I had said is a bit wrong since it is like putting salt into ones wounds .

    So the Solstice, usually around Dec 21, should be just as good and eliminate the last officially recognized religious holiday

    Um, no. Too much backlash, too much effort...all for something that's essentially a non-issue.

    You're 1 of a nation of damn near 400 million. The will of the few does not get imposed on the will of the many, especially if it has nothing to do with legality, security, or freedom.

    A holiday is as religious as you want to make it. Period.

    Do you think I light candles for 8 days, or go without food for 40?
