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.

Jewish holidays. The public schools in my area always got them off.

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!"

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.

I'm not sure if anyone anywhere gets Halloween off. I would take that over Easter, though, since depressing family things usually ruin that and Halloween is actually fun.

I didn't mean having it off, just having it existing :P It sounds like a lot of fun, you get to dress up AND to eat candy.
