Huge improvement in perspective. Thank you Mr. De Blasio.

Yes, schools cannot recognize every religious holiday, but if it is a large number of students they should get a day off.

My suggestion is that there should be a day off for Diwali and a day for Eid if it actually falls on a school day. If not who cares, the students already have a day off. These festivals are not like Halloween which is on a same set date every year. They follow a certain calendar and change often. Let me know what you think.

 Some photos below of each festival.
