Hanukah began on Tuesday, yesterday was the Winter Solstice, and Sunday is Christmas. With all of this celebrating going on, it can be hard to find time to take a breather. But this is a good time to reflect on religious liberty in America, even if you aren’t celebrating one of these holidays.
Consider Christmas. It occupies an interesting niche in American public life. It’s primarily a Christian holiday, but as years pass, more and more people are celebrating it in a secular fashion. At the same time, others celebrate the holidays of other faiths or choose to ignore them all.
