Those wacky, madcap Germans are promoting a little change in their set of national holidays: some people want to change the Feast of the Ascension, celebrating the day Jesus supposedly floated up into heaven, to…Evolution Day! As you might guess, I think this is an excellent idea. There is a petition you can sign, and less usefully, an online poll:
Ich bin dafÃ¼r (for it) 3061
Ich bin dagegen (against it) 1312
Ist mir egal (don’t care) 244
They even have a charming video to go with their proposal.
