    because of it's cultural importance (not simply religious), but that's just an individual assessment.  I think these are matters of judgement.  There is a difference between "high holy days" and other days of commemoration.

    BTW: we have the same thing in a secular version.  It's probably not very productive or respectful to start a discussion that's critical of vetrans on Memorial Day, for example.

    In my industry we call this kind of thing "cultural awareness" and yes, there are people who try to teach it to the lunkheads of the world who want to proclaim this is just pansy-waisted moddlecoddling designed to spend waste more money and make regular 'Merikans feel insecure.
