The Bible says for Jews to do it as a covenant, like a mark of Jewishness with God. Some Jews don't do it anymore since it doesn't make you not a Jew if you aren't, but most do.

Christians don't have to for the same reason they don't have to practice kosher. Basically, it's Old Testament stuff. Outside the U.S. - even in Canada, and even in some parts of the U.S. - most Christians just don't do it anymore. The Catholic Church actually opposes it, I believe.

There's no reason to apologize. It's not like they teach us this stuff in school.
