Do you believe everything that Jesus said?
Sim, Good observations. Christmas, Easter holidays and such are not Biblical. The name Easter was taken from a pagan idol. The Lord's church has no reason to celebrate Easter once every year, because we do this every week, every Sunday, on the 'Lord's day. That is what the 'Lord's Table,' or 'Communion' is all about. This is what Jesus told his disciples to do. Christmas is not a Biblical holiday either. Good worship is to obey Christ, not to offer up substitutes. God hates substitutions. i.e.: Cain and Abel. Cain offered up what God had not commanded.
However; although we do not have special worship services in Christ's church, we don't frown on people for honoring Jesus Christ, and at least thinking about Him, --at least once a year. We are not to be a stumbling block to others who are finding their way, and loving and worshipping God in their own way. People who are seeking will find their way.
About the touching Mary or not touching Mary, I'm not sure where you are. However, it is a good question. I have found that when I do the research, I always find good answers. It is hard to find people with good answers to some questions, but I have been around now for 71 years, and I can usually (always?) find a rational answer for thinking people. -dc
