I live next door to a Jehoviah Witness Meeting Hall and they don’t believe in celebrating holidays because they believe every day should be celebrated. Although I am not at all close to being a Jehoviah I like that rational but only for a short time. Taking out time to celebrate special days: birthdays, National Holidays, Christmas, Easter, Halloween, St. Paddy’s Day gets us out of the ordinary routine and reminds us to pause and celebrate, honor and be grateful. I do like however the idea of making ordinary days special and celebrating whenever possible. Maybe I should start a new religion….IrishWitness.
