New Year’s Day. Move it to a Saturday.
July 4th too. Heck, why don’t we
just do away with the rest of the
week and make every day a Saturday!
We would really make some dough then!
Wouldn’t we?

Therefore this argument is invalid.

Can’t we for one moment forget the bottom line of greed and money and remember our religious holidays for what they are, our secular holidays (Washington’s Birthday, Lincoln’s Birthday, 4th of July, Memorial Day, Labor Day, Armistice [Veteran’s Day] and Thanksgiving) for what they are. Not just to have another sale? What’s wrong with America? Having Christmas and all the Holidays on convenient days for the greedy corporations, that’s what.

Opening day for hunting should be on weekends too. For years, major manufacturers were forced to shutdown factories because workers took the day off to go hunting.

By moving all birthdays to weekends, we can eliminate wasted time on cake and coffee mini celebrations at the office and lost productivity “the morning after.”

Legislate that anniversaries, Halloween, Independence Day, Labor Day, Memorial Day, St. Patrick’s Day and every other holiday that falls Monday through Friday must be celebrated on Saturday or Sunday.

Christmas is the celebration of the birth of Jesus Christ. Retailers turned it into their primary sales time, but they do not own His birthday or any other holy-day.

You’re an intelligent guy. Make money your purpose and you’ll end up like Midas.
