    Read some place that 1000 years ago there were so many saint’s feast days that the serfs seldom worked their 6 day week. I’ll celebrate most anything for time and a half but where do we draw the line?

      “where do we draw the line?”

      At the boundary?

    The students who initiated this should be commended, encouraged and guided, not derided with a harsh piece like this one!

      How is this harsh? Commend them for putting their idea forwarded, and guide them to the right method, namely approaching the school board.

    I worked at a school where three siblings did not attend school on certain days due to their Christian beliefs, namely Halloween, bcs they didn’t ‘do’ Halloween. The school was fine with it. Not doing Santa Claus was fine too. I think if a parent explained that ie their child would be off school for Eid, the school would not mind, and certainly should not mind.
