I was surprised to see a site still protesting Sunday Shopping. At one point the writer says he did not start out protesting due to religion. But, if not for religion it could be any week day. Sunday is the legendary “day of rest”. But, not if you’re an atheist. Why not keep Sundays for business and close down Monday? Or Friday? Maybe Wednesday, it’s right there in the middle of the week.
I might pick Thursday but then who would really want to go back to work on Friday knowing you have Saturday and Sunday off?
There can only be so many religious holidays. Christians already have more time off than any other religion in North America. I don’t think the Sunday Shopping protest is going any where. The real test is to see how many people are spending time in church. I’ve heard the numbers are dropping. A shame but… religion is a personal thing.
