The halacha is that unless you're a resident of Eretz Yisrael that isn't planning on returning to live permanently outside of Israel, you're required to keep two days of Yom Tov. I'm not sure how people go about the holidays.
Who do you think you are fooling? You think you are going to pull a quick one on your Creator? Good luck with that.

I certainly kept one day. I even flew chol hamoed once and kept 2 days first days and 1 day second days.

Thank you Rabbi. There are those who disagree with you.

For things like chilul Yom tov, chametz and tefillin he'd rather rely on some random guy on a forum
Unless he's just asking to hear different experiences
