SILVER SPRING, Md. — The official Adventist dictionary that makes sense of everything from 1844 to “the daily” defines Labor Day for the first time in its latest edition.
The volume defines Labor Day as an “Unsabbathy Sabbath,” going on to explain that the American holiday allows for people to do no work, just like on Sabbath. The dictionary entry adds that “unlike a Sabbathy Sabbath the day has no restrictions on shopping, swimming or conversational topics.”
Adventists are reminded that “Unsabbathy does not mean UnAdventisty.” Members are told to keep their grills veggie-friendly and their drinks Shirley Templey.
