This is something that causes Christians and Jews to be looked down upon and seen as jerks, that they don’t engage in this stuff. In Roman cities there’s beautiful public spaces that you can hang around in. They didn’t have a weekend but they took a day off every few days for some festival or another. days in which you can do business & days in which you can’t. military victories (real or fake), or, more usually, in honor of gods. even military victory celebrations probably have some sacrifice. Sometimes the government gives you money to celebrate. Everyone is celebrating and the Christians are at home with the house dark, no reeds on the doors, keeping quiet, and with the shutters closed, and if they ever got forcibly dragged along (as sometimes started to happen) they would make a great show of not enjoying themselves.
Apparently I'm the best Christian ever.
