    Good question... now we'll see how many atheists here are honest, and care to explain themselves.

    I'll take any time off from work given to me. None of the religious holidays represent what they originally did. I may be wrong but there are only 2 religious holidays, Good Friday and Christmas.

    You've already been honest, and you know what about.

    So it's not as though it's big mystery why people that don't believe in God or Jesus Christ take Christmas off for instance. Hey, it's a day off, usually paid. Why wouldn't they take it? It's given to them. Makes no difference whether they believe or not. But, it is rather hypocritical, don't you think?

    What does this have to do with being a believer or an Atheist?
