    Why don't we have any federal holidays for non christian religions?

    Why is it that Christmas is a federal holiday in USA yet there are no other federal holidays for non Christian religions. Is it because the other religions are minorities?

    It's because no matter what anyone who hates Christians thinks, Christianity has been a dominant force in the culture of the US....

    Could it be there would be so many days off, there would be no work in this country?

    Would you expect an Arab country to celebrate Christians holidays?  Or an  Hindu country to celebrate christmas? It is a matter of geography and culture.

    I don’t think holyday is related with any religion. It is the country that gives the importance of human’s values that have a belief in some ethics. In Hindu India Christmas is celebrated in high esteem with holyday.
