2. Music and television programs pertaining to your religion’s holidays are readily accessible.
3. It is easy to find stores that carry items that enable you to practice your faith and celebrate religious holidays.
4. You aren’t pressured to celebrate holidays from another faith that may conflict with your religious values.
5. Holidays celebrating your faith are so widely supported you can often forget they are limited to your faith (e.g. wish someone a “Merry Christmas” or “Happy Easter” without considering their faith).
6. A bumper sticker supporting your religion won’t likely lead to your car being vandalized.
7. You can practice your religious customs without being questioned, mocked, or inhibited.
8. When swearing an oath, you will place your hand on a religious scripture pertaining to your faith.
9. You can go into any career you want without it being associated with or explained by your faith.
10. Your faith can be an aspect of your identity without being a defining aspect (e.g., people won’t think of you as their “Christian” friend)
