RAIN p166 - Morning After by JocelynSamara RAIN p166 - Morning After by JocelynSamara

I should probably explain Faraís comments in the beginning. I canít vouch for all Catholic schools, but in my personal experience, we always got the day after Halloween off from school because All Saints Day is a holy day of obligation. We also got days like the Feast of the Immaculate Conception (Dec. 8th) too. It was really cool because when all the public schools still had classes, I was at home kicking back. On the opposite end of the spectrum, we didnít get off for Yom Kippur or Rosh Hashanah like the public schools did. In the end, it all really evens out.

Anyway, my point in all this is that most of the main cast consists of Catholic school students, which is meant to explain why no oneís in school on the day after Halloween.

I think its more important that Yum-Kipper is taken off than Rosh Hashanah, That way there is no unintentional cruelty in the cafeteria, being a fast day and all, granted if you're going to have one of the high holidays might as well have the other...

Huh. I've...gone to a public school for most of my life, where any mention of religion (save for Santa) is strictly not allowed.

Then I was Homeschooled. ^^;

Never heard of a public school getting the day off for a Jewish holiday. Not without calling it something like special recess, like my school did near Christmas.

That sounds like more or less an excuse to just...not have school. :P "Whaaaat? Those other guys get school off for a holiday we don't have? I wanna have school off!"

Well the Jewish high holidays typically take up the full day, and Passover varies on the family, for some the service is half an hour others its 4 hours... You have to account for it if theres a significant Jewish populous in the area, and you have to excuse it in a public school if there are only a few regardless, usually they time the breaks to fit the holidays inside

I'm from France, All Saints Day is a holiday in every school there. Didn't realise it was Catholic (I mean, I realised it was Christian, but not that it was specifically Catholic).
On the other hand we didn't get Halloween. You win some, you lose some I guess.
