Does a holiday have to have a religious affiliation to be a holiday?

A student at my school claimed Halloween isn't a holiday, because it has no religious affiliation. It's true most holidays have a religious affiliation, but what do you think?Continue

Religion at Thanksgiving and Other Holidays.

So, I don't really know what religion my family is, some sort of Christian sect I suppose, but I always feel nervous when holidays roll around, as I'm an atheist and I know my family always prays at family dinners. They're not super religious, but that just makes me more nervous. This Thanksgiving I bowed my head and ignored everyone crossing themselves when they said a prayer. My question is: Should I fake it or twiddle my thumbs and stare at the ceiling and ignore them this Christmas?See More

hi Logan, welcome to Think Atheist! I was raised Buddhist but got enough answers to be comfortable in saying that I'm Atheist. There's a lot of merit to Buddhism for sure. I like that there is not the one shoe fits all aspect about it.

 

Again, welcome!
