Being Mothers Day, I decided I should write a post about it. When I browsed my previous posts I realized that I had already written a mothers day post last year.
So I decided I'll write about a recent things I heard about secular holidays, by the frummy people.
One person I was speaking to was telling me about how much better Jewish holidays are than the secular ones. She was saying that the Jewish holidays are "real" because they are on specific days. They fall out whenever they fall out, and they aren't done on Sundays, or on "convenient" days like the secular ones. She said "We don't make holidays to fall out for 3-day-weekends, we have them fall out when Gd wants them to!"
I have two major issues with this woman's ridiculous argument.
1- Holidays like Easter and Christmas fall out on the days [they believe] Gd wants it too. Then there is Independence Day (4th of July) which isn't necessarily on a convenient day.
2- What is the problem with a man-made holiday falling out on a convenient day? As I pointed out in #1 their religious holidays fall out when they are supposed, and July 4th as well. Holidays like Memorial Day and Labor Day represent many wars, which means celebrating them on a specific day is in-actuality unnecessary.
What do these retarded people have a problem with. Why is everything "secular" necessarily bad?
I mean "OMG, THE MAN-MADE HOLIDAY'S ARE ON DAYS THE PEOPLE ACTUALLY CAN OBSERVE THEM! OMG, THE HORROR, IT'S RESPECTFUL!"
