I always was somewhat amused when I was managing for a large (now absorbed) 
chain of movie theatres in the Boston area that the official policy manual 
listed for permissible religious holidays two Christian and about fourteen 
Jewish holidays.  Most of my Jewish friends had never heard of 1/2 of the 
ones on the list.  Of course, if you were in the trenches as a manager, 
good luck on taking any of them off.
