In Germany, Humanist Students Now Can Get Holiday Excused Absence

AP reported yesterday that in Germany, the schools in Berlin have officially recognized World Humanist Day (June 21) as a holiday for which Humanist students can obtain an excused absence. This places the day on the same plane as religious holidays such as All Saints Day, Yom Kippur or Eid al-Fitr for which students of other faiths can get excused absences.
