Dear Jennifer: I understand there is a push by Hindus to have a new holiday observed by school districts. Have you heard of this?

I have, but it doesn't appear to be happening here. Schools in the Bay Area, which has a growing Indian population, may consider celebrating Diwali. It's a holiday that supporters claim to be the Hindu equivalent to Christmas for Christians.
