My point is that no-one typically cares about the reasons behind a holiday, we're just pleased to have a day off work. So what if you aren't a Christian? Hooray for Easter! Chocolate and a couple of days off work. Who doesn't like that? If you don't want to hear about Jesus, just don't go to church, it's that simple. And the Queen's Birthday? Cheers, Queenie, thanks for existing so we can have a day off! I can't hate the Queen, purely for the reason that it's because of her that we all get a holiday on the second Monday in June (or the first Monday if you live in New Zealand, and I think Western Australia celebrates it in late September).
So, by this logic, I've determined we should have John Howard Day and George W. Bush Day. It would actually make their existence useful. Cheers, Bush and Howard! I can't bloody stand either of you, but thanks for giving us an excuse to not do work!
With that said, I better return to writing and trying to complete my essay on the political impact of the Protestant Reformation generally and John Calvin's teachings specifically on the Genevan Republic in the sixteenth century. Thrilling, I can assure you.
