Presidents Day is celebrated the third Monday of each February. However, its legal name is Washington’s Birthday. The U.S. government began the day in 1880 in the District of Columbia. It was at first celebrated on the actual birthday of the first U.S. President, George Washington, which was February 22. However the date was changed to the third Monday in 1971.
Dia de Presidente se celebra el tercer lunes de cada febrero. Sin embargo, su nombre legal es el Cumpleaños de Washington. El gobierno de los EEUU comenzó el día en 1880 en el districto de Colombia. Al principio se celebró en el cumpleaños real del primer Presidente de los EEUU, Jorge Washington, que era de 22 de febrero el 22. Sin embargo la fecha fue cambiado al tercer lunes en 1971.
In the late 1980s businesses pushed to have the holiday called President’s Day but this is still not official. Also, many people also want to honor Abraham Lincoln on the same day. This has also not been officially done on the federal level, however many states now call the day Presidents Day or Washington and Lincoln Day. Some states also honor other U.S. Presidents or famous people on the day, for example Thomas Jefferson, John Kennedy, and Daisy Gatson Bates.
En los 1980s unos negocios empujaron para tener el día de fiesta llamado Día de los Presidentes pero esto todavía no es oficial. También, mucha gente quieren honrar a Abrahan Lincoln el mismo día. Esto también no se ha hecho oficialmente en el nivel federal, sin embargo muchos estados ahora llaman al dia el Día de Presidentes, Día de Washington y Dia de Lincoln. Unos estados también honran a otros presidentes o personas famosas en el día, por ejemplo Thomas Jefferson, Juan Kennedy, y Daisy Gatson Bates.
Many American stores have sales on the day. However some large businesses and schools close. Some places also use the day for honoring U.S. soldiers who fought in wars. There are festivals and parades. Washington’s last speech to the United States is also read by many groups on the day, a tradition that began in 1862.
Muchos tiendas americanos tienen ventas en el día. Sin embargo, algunos negocios y escuelas grandes se cierran. Algunos lugares también utilizan el día para honrar a los soldados de los EEUU que lucharon en guerras. Hay festivales y desfiles. El ultimo discurso de Washington a los Estados Unidos también esta leído por muchos grupos durante el día, una tradición que comenzó en 1862.

VALENTINE’S DAY



Copyright 2008

By Mason Emerson
By scripture and history this answers why almost all Christians find Valentine’s Day acceptable. Scripturally, Galatians 5:22 says that two fruits of God’s Holy Spirit are “love” and “joy” or happiness such as received in celebrations such as Valentine’s Day besides which Colossians 2:16 says” let none judge you about a holiday,” Romans 14 notes there is great Christian freedom in such things, while 1 John 4:8 says God above all is love, and Colossians 3:14 does not say the perfect bond of unity is forced uniformity of beliefs or whatever, but that the perfect bond in LOVE.
Although beginning among Romans in the 3rd Century as the February feast of Lupercalia, Valentine’s Day quickly developed for Christians. Roman pagans had randomly drawn boys’ and girls’ names from a box to match them up as friends to take to their festivities beginning in March, but Christians changed the feast name to St. Valentine's Day and had their children draw the names of saints whose lives were to be copied the next year. In the 1300s the parents returned to simply drawing girls' names for loving Christian friendships, while Chaucer and John Donne wrote that various Europeans of their time believed that February 14 was when birds begin to mate.

Also, seven Christians named Valentine were honored with feasts on February 14th. A priest marrying men about to go to war, despite the Emperor Claudius's ban on doing so, was imprisoned until death. A Valentine who cured a jailer's daughter of blindness wrote cards signed "From Your Valentine" until Claudius had him beheaded on February 14, 269 A.D. These legends merged and in 496 Pope Gelasius made the Valentine’s Day official.


The oldest existing Valentine’s card is from the 1400s and is in the British Royal Museum. In the United States, Esther Howland produced Valentine’s Day cards commercially in the 1840’s, and they became popular in Michigan in the 1880s. So, although you may see a Cupid goddess once in a while, Valentine’s Day has nothing to do with worshipping any ancient gods or goddesses, but rather it is a time for celebrating love, the greatest bond for friendships, whether this is done by cards, chocolates or fun parties.

MOTHER'S DAY!

Copyright 2008

By Mason Emerson
Independent from any prior celebration anytime in the past, Julia Ward Howe called for the celebration of a Mother’s Day in 1870 in Boston to be observed yearly for peace and women's suffrage. She was also well-known as an American writer.
In 1905 Anna Jarvis of Philadelphia reinvented Mother’s Day as a time to show appreciation for good mothers given by God after the death of her own mother. Some churches and later the U.S. Congress backed it so that by 1914 it was a national holiday.
The similar British celebration of Mothering Sunday originated from the 1700s although the details are not clearly known. Today many eastern Asian nations have adopted the American version while many African nations have adopted the British version...



Mother’s Day, Father’s Day had no prior non-Christian origins, including nothing to do with any of the ancient Greek or Roman goddesses such as Rhea or Ceberus. Besides which Colossians 2:16 says do not let anyone judge you about the observing of holidays.


FATHER'S DAY!

Copyright 2008

By Mason Emerson
Some people have been wrongly told that Father’s Day is of pagan origins. In fact in 1909 Sonora L Dodd promoted Father’s Day to show love for living and deceased fathers including her own. U.S. President Wilson endorsed it in 1916, and in 1972 U.S. President Nixon made it a permanent day of observance. Non-Christian, pagan Romans honored only deceased fathers each February, and when Dodd started Father’s Day in America there was absolutely no connection to the ancient Roman celebration.
In fact the Bible praises the Father of all life and Christ’s prayer in Matthew 6 begins with “Our Father who is in heaven.” Colossians 2:16 says “Do not let anyone judge you... with regard to a religious festival” besides which Father’s Day in the U.S. and in many other nations is not a religious day but a time when family members can show acts of kindness, love and affection in respect for fathers.
It is celebrated February 23 in Russia, the Ukraine and Belarus; on March 14 in Iran; on March 19 in Bolivia, Honduras, Italy, Liechtenstein, Portugal, Spain; on the third Sunday of June in many Latin America, China and in many other nations; on July 30 in Vietnam; and on August 8 in Taiwan, etc. It is truly an international celebration when gifts are given and there are special activities for the family.

FLAG DAYS AND



THE BIBLE’S PRAISE OF THEM



photo credits: wikipedia.org
Most nations have some manner of Flag Day. For example Mexico’s Flag Day is February 24. In the United States it the day is celebrated June 14, the same day when the U.S. adopted its flag in 1777. Flag Day was made officially proclaimed by the U.S. President only in 1916, and it was not made an official day by the U.S. Congress until August 1949. Troy, New York, has the largest Flag Day parade.
The Bible itself uses a word translated as banners, ensigns or flags. Speaking of these, Psalm 20:5 says "We will cry out joyfully because of your salvation, and in the name of our God we shall lift our banners." Canticles (Song of Solomon) 2:4 says "He brought me into the house of wine, and his banner over me was love."
Canticles (Song of Solomon) 6:4 says "You are beautiful , O girl companion of mine, like Pleasant City, comely like Jerusalem, awesome as companies gathered around banners." And Canticles 6:10 which states "Who is this woman who is looking down like the dawn, beautiful like the full moon, pure like the glowing sun, awesome as companies gathered around banners?"
That's what the Bible itself says. Obviously fanatical, unquestioning ultra-nationalism as with the Nazis is wrong, but again the Bible itself speaks of flags, ensigns or banners in no negative way but in positive contexts of joy and love. Further, no matter how much some people or religious groups say otherwise, the real truth is that most people use or salute them to show "respect," not to worship them, a nation or a government system.
In fact the tribes and nation of Israel used them because God had told them to do so. How so? For example pagan nations often carried into battle small idols on elevated poles representative of the gods which they worshipped. God had told the Israelites they must not use idols (Exodus 20:4), so to represent themselves and God they instead used banners or flags.
