Holidays I'd like to see

Try a New Religion Day  <p>No, not like the band New Religion. Like if you're Catholic, go to a Jewish ceremony. Jewish hope over to the Baptist Church. Mormons, meet someone from the Church of the Flying Spaghetti Monster. Atheist,  why don't Muslims eat what you eat? Hindu meet someone who is New Age and pick their brain. If we understood each other's ideals more, it's make the world an easier place to live in. This could even be a college course...they could call it, World Religions or something!
With Rugby Christmas over, Ugly Christmas sweater Parties right around the corner, and me currently on day two of cooking/baking for Thanksgiving, there are a few holidays I’d really like to see.
