I don't pretend to speak for any Christians, let alone "most," but take out Good Friday. Even the Catholics I know don't go to mass that day and it was never actively observed in my family, which attended church each week. Easter always falls on a Sunday, so that doesn't really count because government offices are closed.
I have worked on Christmas Eve and the same goes for most other Christians in the real world. It has traditionally not been a federal holiday, although the president included it this year as a perk.
Ash Wednesday is really only a big deal for Catholics and people really ought to stop assuming all Christians worship the way Catholics do.
What surprises me is that the MNA resides within the 6th district, one of the most active and competitive in the city. There should have been more forums and they should have been held in other parts of the district (I'll leave questions about the propriety of hosting such an event at a Catholic church to others), particularly the troubled and traditionally under-served Darbo-Worthington.
