Subject: RE: BS: Happy Juneteenth! Now Federal Holiday
it had to have an exact date and commemorate an exact time.
On purely practical terms it is convenient to have predictable holy days. In the UK, Easter is a movable feast and few people can predict (or know what is) the vernal equinox, let alone figure the rest of the calculation. And the Gov delight in making a very predictable end of May holiday into a queenie June celebration.
Stick with a date and remember why it exists.
