I find it strange that the only surviving English/British religion,
Paganism, is the target for being abolished. Mayday was traditionally the
fertility festival. It would make more sense to embrace the Pagan holidays
seeing as they are celebrated more evenly throughout the year. Plus they
don't glorify death and have a healthy celebration for life.
