I find it hysterical how Canada prides itself on being multicultural when the non-civic statutory holidays are all christian and no other faith’s special days are stat holidays.
Even without government sanctioning, non-christian religious holidays are not celebrated as secular shopping events or reflected in office parties.
Is Christianity just more portable to secular commercialism, a reversal of the money changers?
Or are other religions better able to hold their believers to the modesty and other behavioral codes?
Or is it because the other religions like to keep it to themselves – ie born to it – or because they observe with modesty and restraint – fasting instead of feasting.
