The problem is that we don’t know which holidays are more important and worthwhile since every religion thinks that their religion is the best. Essentially, every holiday should be assumed to be important so why not celebrate every holiday since there is only one faith after all.
Faith comes in many forms and many directions. In any case there would be at least 100 or more different holidays everyone needs to celebrate, but that is why we have choices. We celebrate the holidays that mean something special to us.
It doesn’t have to mean that we must celebrate what our parents or ancestors celebrated, just the celebration of holiday that is special to us.
Holidays are for the people that need something special to celebrate. Most people in the world celebrate Christmas because it is special to most people in the world. Most people in the world feel that celebrating Jesus’s birthday will give them hope and remembrance of everything.
Jewish people celebrate the high holidays because of the same reasons why most people in the world celebrate Christmas.
Chanukah really is not an important Jewish holiday and only became important when Christians all over were celebrating Christmas, and many Jewish people felt that they wanted to remember something too that time of year, so Chanukah became more and more commericialized as well.
Really this time of year is for most people in the world who believe in Jesus and want to remember him. While the high holidays earlier in the year is for the Jewish people who want and need to remember for themselves.
I believe you grow up with whatever your parents believe, and no one knows for sure what is right and what is wrong.
All we know is that when we die, we either go to heaven or go to a place we don’t want to go to. Or better yet do you believe in reincarnation. I wish so many people to be reincarnated when they die because I believe certain people should be reincarnated to live their life again trying harder than in their past life.
Anyway, I really have to get going now,
