IMHO in the UK Nov 6th and 11th should be bank holidays the 6th to have a day to get over the fireworks party and the 11th to remember those who lost their lives.
(and today they must wonder what for)

Should definately have 11th November, as well as remembering on the Sunday. And I`m sure they would wonder, but it would be a sin to speak of their sacrifice being in vain.

Sadly, and IMHO if we did do this, it should be a day to remember, shops all closed... tho' I doubt that this would ever happen.

I wish they'd go back to closing all shops on a Sunday.

Just a thought here,

Why do shops owned by non-Christians still close down for Christian holidays ???

or in another instance...

My sister used to work for a Muslim shopkeeper who got her to work for extra hours during Ramadan, yet he would not give her extra time off over the Christmas period to spend with her children.



Nigel ?  Oh yeah, he's up there !

That`s what happens when you`re money orientated.... as most of society is nowadays.

You should see the traffic jams in the direction of the local shopping complex on sundays here.... it`s crazy, it`s worse than on saturdays. They open from 1pm until 6pm,.. it reminds me of the movie when everyone is gathering supplies cos they have to stay underground for 6 months, to avoid radiation poisoning.
