  2. I, myself, am Christian, but I enjoyed this calendar. There is debate on what holidays Christians should celebrate because of the days they may fall on, and what else is being celebrated on the same day. Which is silly to me, because I thought that there was probably something, or someone, being celebrated on every day. And....your calendars show that! lol Days are days, and people will always celebrate. My celebration is not made void if another is celebrating something else on the same day. Thank you!
