Honestly, all holidays are kinda pointless. Their entire purpose is just to have some excuse to take a day off and celebrate roughly once a month. "It's, uhh...the vernal equinox! We'd better have a get-together this Sunday, because, umm...fertility gods? Deific autoresurrection? Rabbits...and...chocolate...???"
But it's a pointless thing that also happens to be a popular thing, and I'm certainly not gonna be the guy who goes against the idea of kicking back every now and then.
