I’ll keep this post short.
In my Govicide novels, the One World Government and its Masses only have government holidays. Or more appropriately: Remembrances–The first day of the OWG, the day the Govicide Department came into being, the first day anything private ceased to exist, etc.
I know, it sounds radical. But, it’s not so different from the current trend.
Christmas? The word has almost been deleted from the English language from mid-November until the end of December.
Thanksgiving? It’s racist because we all know the Pilgrims hated and killed the Indians.
Easter? Jesus is a figment of some writer’s imagination.
But, here in the USA, we have no problem with Labor Day, Memorial Day, MLK Day–“holidays” that have everything to do with government, and nothing with our heritage, as well meaning as they and others are. They’ve been thrust to the forefront while the others are starting to be erased.
Sound familiar to what happens in my books?
Happy Thanksgiving, again.
