Re: Living in a Religious Dominated Place

Cool, so we have 3 non religious holidays, and 11 religious ones!

And by "we" you mean Ticino. Again, this is most definitely not the case in the rest of Switzerland.

Religion class is not mandatory in Switzerland!

Depends on the canton, there are certainly others with at least some of the holidays we have.

Anyway, the rest of Switzerland doesn't matter!

Re: Living in a Religious Dominated Place

I would love to know how things are done in other countries with regards to government sponsored religious events. I know that it is very strict in Muslim countries. How is religion and government tied in China? Japan? Brazil? New Zealand? Australia?

Don't you teach English to international students? How about asking them?

Oh, yes. Make them write an essay on the topic.

I'd hate you if you were my teacher and made me do it. So it must be a brilliant idea!
