Midsummer is one of the only Pagan holidays that are still celebrated in Europe (if not the only). In English-speaking countries, the festival is traditionally celebrated with the hymn "For All the Saints" by William Walsham How. An elaborate dinner is eaten with the family, consisting of roast pork, roast duck or roast goose with potatoes, red cabbage and gravy. Or a funeral that focuses on the person who had died and the life they led – not on the idea of an afterlife – and provides a dignified and sincere way of saying goodbye.

Consequences of a multiplicity of celebrations: As North America becomes more religiously and culturally diverse, there is an increasing potential for conflict near Christmas time: Some Christians object to what they feel is a diluting of their traditions due to the impact of minority religions and cultures. The attacks by the secular relativists on 'organized religion' on almost a daily basis for so many years now have persuaded today's young people (and even many not so young people) that all the great Christian thinkers over the last 2,000 years got it all wrong.

This is a Dumfries festival which has its origins in a court which resolved disputes between neighbours to make them "Guid Nychburris" or good neighbours. People think it is then medicaid expansion and automatically think it is.

The Jesus that these preachers and religionists have in mind is another Christ, one with another gospel, another spirit—the Christmas spirit!—bringing totally different doctrines and teachings.

Not to simply take things as they are or what the majority would like for them to be. Thousands of people gather to watch the bright musical performances. Easter is the most important festival of the Greek Orthodox Church. On the following day, All Soul's Day (which is not a holiday), Italians place flowers on the tombs of their ancestors so you'll see lots of flowers on sale leading up to November 2 and if you visit a cemetary it will be full of flowers. These hidden aspects of culture can cause misunderstandings and cross-group conflicts; they can impact teacher-student and student-student relationships, and create hard-to-identify barriers to academic content matter.
