I should probably explain Fara’s comments in the beginning. I can’t vouch for all Catholic schools, but in my personal experience, we always got the day after Halloween off from school because All Saints Day is a holy day of obligation. We also got days like the Feast of the Immaculate Conception (Dec. 8th) too. It was really cool because when all the public schools still had classes, I was at home kicking back. On the opposite end of the spectrum, we didn’t get off for Yom Kippur or Rosh Hashanah like the public schools did. In the end, it all really evens out.

Anyway, my point in all this is that most of the main cast consists of Catholic school students, which is meant to explain why no one’s in school on the day after Halloween.

In my country All Saints Day, Epiphany and some other Catholic holidays are off in every school, no matter if Catholic or public. On the other way, most of the population has no idea what Yom Kippur or Rosh Hashanah is.

The Feast of the Immaculate Conception is on Dec 8, not March 20 or so?

OMG, poor Mary! Totally brutal 2.4 weeks!

I mean. Most historians agree that Jesus was actually born in August, so it would be about 8 months. And in fact we know from records that the Catholic Church moved the date of Jesus's birth to December mostly so they could co-opt other pagan holidays arohnd that time like Saturnalia and Yule as their own.

And getting to stomp all over Hanukkah? Well, some of the time, anyway. BONUS!

I attended a Catholic school up until halfway through first grade, when I transferred to a public school. We never had All Saints Day off, but I'm not sure if this is true for all Catholic schools.
