Why don’t Christians care about Yahweh’s holy anointed days as per Leviticus 23?

It’s not that Christians “don’t care”…but that these ceremonial laws were an edict given the Hebrew Tribes concerning a special dispensation targeting Israel, alone, (those under the Covenant of Law) as Israel was set-apart for God’s eschatological purposes through whom He would introduce His Messiah to the World.

When Messiah entered the Realm of Time, those ceremonial, civil, laws were fulfilled in Jesus as they only “foreshadowed” the reality of Him who was to come (Colossians 2:16). Why would you expect a Christian, who serves the Fulfillment of what the Law foreshadowed, to honor that which is past when the Fulfillment of same has come and His Spirit lives within our heart? Why serve an image when the Reality lives within us? We see those edicts, we understand their importance and relevance but they have ZERO relevance for our lives in the New Covenant as the tangible fulfillment and the reality of what those traditions foreshadowed has come i.e. Jesus Christ as Lord.

As a Christian, I’m free to honor the feast days and the Sabbath if I so choose understanding their intent but I don’t obsess over days, laws, feasts, because I possess the Holy Spirit and Jesus is my Lord…those things of the past are irrelevant to my daily walk with my Lord as the New has come and I have peace with God through faith in Jesus who is the fulfillment of all the Torah, the prophets, proclaimed and pictured (Romans 5:1).

It is written concerning this matter,

3 Are we beginning to commend ourselves again? Or do we need, as some, letters of commendation to you or from you? 2 You are our letter, written in our hearts, known and read by all people, 3 revealing yourselves, that you are a letter of Christ, [a]delivered by us, written not with ink but with the Spirit of the living God, not on tablets of stone but on tablets of [b]human hearts.

4 Such is the confidence we have toward God through Christ. 5 Not that we are adequate in ourselves so as to consider anything as having come from ourselves, but our adequacy is from God, 6 who also made us adequate as servants of a new covenant, not of the letter but of the Spirit; for the letter kills, but the Spirit gives life. 7 But if the ministry of death, engraved in letters on stones, came [c]with glory so that the sons of Israel could not look intently at the face of Moses because of the glory of his face, fading as it was, 8 how will the ministry of the Spirit fail to be even more with glory? 9 For if the ministry of condemnation has glory, much more does the ministry of righteousness excel in glory. 10 For indeed what had glory in this case has no glory, because of the glory that surpasses it. 11 For if that which fades away was [d]with glory, much more that which remains is in glory.

12 Therefore, having such a hope, we use great boldness in our speech, 13 and we are not like Moses, who used to put a veil over his face so that the sons of Israel would not stare at the end of what was fading away. 14 But their minds were hardened; for until this very day at the reading of the old covenant the same veil [e]remains unlifted, because it is removed in Christ. 15 But to this day whenever Moses is read, a veil lies over their hearts; 16 but whenever someone turns to the Lord, the veil is taken away.

17 Now the Lord is the Spirit, and where the Spirit of the Lord is, there is freedom. 18 But we all, with unveiled faces, looking as in a mirror at the glory of the Lord, are being transformed into the same image from glory to glory, just as from the Lord, the Spirit. 2 Corinthians 3 (NASB)
