THE CITY REBORN FROM THE ASHES OF AMERICA'S MOST DISASTROUS FOREST FIRE
Tales from the old-timer
Banning Religious Holidays for Kids
Citing the constitutional separation of church and state as a model, public schools all across the country have changed the terms Christmas Vacation and Easter Vacation to Winter Vacation and Spring vacation in recent years. Now I remember a Jewish lady from Peshtigo I asked one time, who said her family, for one, had no objection to Christmas or Easter vacations in our time and was glad for the time off. They knew they were a minority and coped with it easily.
If consistency is an ideal, we have got to change the names of many days of the week and months of the year also. For example, Tuesday is named after an old-time God of War, and Wednesday is named after Woden, the Roman God of War. Saturday is named after a God noted for sluggishness, my Encyclopedia Britannica tells me, and January is after Janus, a two faced Roman deity. Looking at a few months, and Mars was the Roman God of War, and Mars was the Norsemens God of War, and a very busy God he was back when those Vikings were roaming the high seas looking for some looting opportunities.
