Christmas is the only religious federal holiday. However, other important religious holidays like Rosh Hashanah, Ramadan, Diwali, Hijra, Yom Kippur, Holi, Chinese New Year and more are not federal holidays. The Constitution states in the first amendment, “Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion...” (Congress 1791). This means that Congress cannot favor one religion over another. Therefore, Congress instituting Christmas as a legal holiday has gone against the first amendment. To have true equity, all major holidays should be recognized as federal holidays (or none at all).
