Give me a White Holiday.
I am curious to know how people feel about this. I was having a conversation with someone and they said, "Did you know there is no such thing as a holiday for white people". Then I started thinking about it and I could not come up with one. I first said Christmas trying to offset Kwanzaa, But that's for Christians. So I found a website that listed all the National Holidays and most of them include everyone. Is that wrong? I have never pondered the idea before. Religions have their own and maybe the Anti Religious should be upset because they don't have one. But those Religions aren't all white either. Why would White people need a holiday? I know that some consider white to be the same as Caucasian. Which originally stood for the physical or biological type of some or all of the populations of Europe, North Africa, the Horn of Africa, Western Asia, Central Asia, and South Asia. Are people starting to think that their heritage is not being celebrated like St. Patrick's Day? Whose responsibility should it be to celebrate your heritage? I know there are Fesitvals for heritages, but I still don't know what the person was expecting me to say. I think its more fun to celebrate with my friends no matter who they might be. I can't think of any holidays for American Indians or Asians either.
