May Day. I remember at school, we used to celebrate it, with a parade and the selection of a May Queen and dancing around the Maypole. Now though the traditions have been forgotten, and the day has no meaning.
Presidents Day is my selection, as I can't remember much ever being made of it non-commercially, and the "Sales" are far from an Honest Abe or a self-reliant and humble Washington. Most people can't even name them all, much less figure out how to celebrate any of them! I'm sure it had a worthy origin, but now it's just an excuse for another day off that costs more than you earned. Let's drop it and just devote ourselves to trying to find a good one worth remembering.
haha that's true unfortunately. And all the hype revolves around a ball dropping?? Who decided that was the best way to celebrate? I think everyone tries too hard to make it something that it's not, it isn't like people's new year's resolutions are a) going to be followed through or b) if they are, make them into a "brand new" person.
Well I am really excited because National Pie Day is almost here. on January 23, young and old alike will be taking a day to enjoy Pie. While other holidays may fall short of our expectations Pie day never lets me down. mmmm... pie, what's not to like?
