So yesterday I was sitting in a school meeting and my friend was talking about Passover. This other girl, eavesdropping, piped up and said, "Oh, is that still going? I thought it was on Sunday."
I just looked at her for a minute confused.
Then I said, "Passover and Easter are different holidays."
Laughing she said, "oh, right."
I, trying to not be condescending, but I'm sure failing miserably said back, "you realize that Passover is a Jewish holiday and Easter is a Christian."
Puzzled she said, "then what is Lent?"
My brains almost exploding, I retorted, "that's Catholic."
Are there people out there in the general public who don't know these basics of other religions? Do you think she is the norm for the American public? I sure hope not.
