Christmas celebrates the birth of Christ and Easter the resurrection of Christ by Christians, but this legislation is intended to honor the entire religion, not just a holy day within the religion.

Nah, the Christian religion is based on Christ, so like I said, Christian Day 1 and 2.

Would you feel the same about a day, set aside by the legislature to honor the entire religion and all of its contributions of Christians, Jews, or Hindus.

Whatever floats the state Senate's boat.

You are correct.  Specific events are celebrated that day, not Christianity itself.  There is a pretty clear distinction.
