Are Holidays really unnecessary? I think so. I don't see a point of them anyways.
Christmas doesn't make sense anymore.
Valentines could be done any other day.
Easter's actual meaning doesn't matter anymore. (as so it seems)
Halloween is just another year where you get free candy.

What I think is that Most holidays are kept so that companies can profit from them yearly by those "sales"...
Well, thats just what I think. I want to know your opinion about this topic.

I like black friday and all the federal holidays. Since I get stuff cheaper and get days off from work.

The other ones suck. Valentines coming up is just going to make a lot of people depressed and a few people happy.

I don't see the problem.

kind of necessary so that we don't have to work on those days.

but I can't get into the spirit of anything. I see my family every day, so I don't really need a date to remind me to see them. lolz.

Of course they aren't necessary. They are just nice to have. They are also good for people who like family reunions and stuff. Get together with your family to enjoy a holiday.

And people need a break every now and then. It doesn't need to be a holiday but people do need breaks.

yes and no, they are "useless" in a rough sense, the question to me though is better answered with another question, what value could you get from a day dedicated to X, personally i love holidays, that is where i work as that is where some of the best moments exist.

also by the same token of uselessness almost everything anyone does is unnecessary, stuff doesn't need to be necessary to hold value though.

I don't think they are necessary either. I don't celebrate them anyways.

They've lost their magic for me, as well, as I've gotten older. But I dunno, I love Halloween still. Not for trick or treating or anything, I just thrive off of horror in general, I guess. I love going through haunted houses.

Meh. I still like holidays. As long as you remember the reason for the season, it's okay. ^^ The point is to have fun.

Holidays are culturally significant. Even if they're taken advantage of commercially they still provide this cultural service. They are an opportunity to raise money for charities and set aside time for loved ones. Even if we're talking about federal holidays they give us a chance to remember the actions of our war heroes and mourn great tragedies. These days of remembrance are used in every society. that's not a coincidence.

Yes. Some holidays make sense. As long as you like them, you're fine.

Yes and no I guess. To me, certain holidays like Halloween, St. Patricks Day, and Valentine's day are just kind of...pointless to me....I still celebrate some because...well....I was raised like that and it's imbedded in my location's culture to celebrate such "necessary" holidays.

I mean, a lot of people keep saying that their families will come to reunite each holiday, but in reality, they could do those things anytime tbh.
