I know one city administrator who should be fired. Not just for changing the name of "Good Friday" to "Spring Holiday" but because he clearly has no actual responsibilities to fill his day so he's making up things to do.

Why don’t they leave it alone, and besides aren’t all Fridays Good by definition???
Not if you get paid every two weeks.
Gutless, spineless, vermin must inhabit this Iowa sewer.
It's very simple--Christmas, Easter, Good Friday, et.al. are Christian holidays (holy days). If you're not a Christian then it's not your holiday so don't celebrate or participate. Period.
I dont remember a biblical quote saying TGIF.
If States dont like giving a holiday for Good Friday, that is their perogitive, it’s not like other Christian holidays are not falling by the wayside as attacks on Chistians are becoming THE thing to do.
However changing the name of it is horse dung.
