I get tired of people complaining about our confederate history of our southern states and about the confederate flag. But one fact remains, I have never heard any of them complain about the confederate holidays.

Are there any?
Hi all,

I remember, in 1969, after relocating from California to Huntsville -- my wife asked a friend to go shopping. The friend told her, "The stores are closed today. It is Memorial Day."

My wife, an Oklahoma girl, told her, "This is not Memorial Day."

And, our friend told her, "It is Confederate Memorial Day."

At that time, neither of us realized that there was a different Memorial Day for the South -- and I am a Southerner.

Personally, while I am proud to be a Southerner, especially an Alabama Southerner, and I love studying Southern history and Civil War history -- it would seem that we should have one national day to recognize and honor ALL of our war dead -- regardless in which war they died.

God bless, have a wonderful, blessed day,

Bill
I believe they should be banned because in my opinion, they are a complete waste of taxpayer's money to recognize holidays that only county courthouses are off. They are inconvenenant on people that has to do business with the courthouses. Let's face it why celebrate them?

So, if the fed offices were closed also, how would that make going to a closed county courthouse any different?

By the same token, some could say that 'celebrating Martin Luther King's birthday as a federal holiday is inconvenient to whites...for the same exact reasons'.


I have to agree. Some could say that the federal government gave up a holiday, Good Friday, to celebrate MLK. Thus removing a Christian holiday from our calender.
