I recognize the cultural significance of Lunar New Year, but am lost on this vote. By recognition, what does this entail? National holiday or it's just added to all of the calendars we buy each year? It is my belief that while we should recognize specific holidays as national holidays (i.e. Fourth of July, New Years, Presidents' Day) there should be a 3-5 day allowance for personally observed holidays allotted to you by your employer for religious or secular holidays. Not everybody needs or wants Christmas off, but if you do, take it. Perhaps instead of Christmas, you want days off for a family reunion in the summer, take your holiday. Easter, Lunar New Year, Ramadan, Halloween, first-day-of-spring; you pick your holidays that aren't represented by the country as a whole.
