National Holiday

Postby Rudy » Mon Feb 20, 3:11 pm

What began as a celebration of George Washington`s birthday was eventually
changed to Presidents Day.

I move we change it again to "Fuck Elite Fascist Bastards Day".

No bank, no mail. Gobs of fake news accusations and whining. A portent of things to come?

Who knows.

What a disaster.

Perhaps we should change the name to Bankers day? They always take the day off and that's who our president's have been pandering to for decades.

Perhaps then we should call it Precedence Day?

It sometimes gets dicey naming holidays after people rather than events. In Virginia, they created a state holiday back in the late 19th century called Lee-Jackson Day in tribute to the two confederate generals. Fast forward 100 years and ML King's birthday became a federal holiday. Ironically, it fell on the same day as LJ Day and Virginia called it Lee-Jackson-King Day for the next 15 years or so...lol. They eventually split it and moved LJ Day to the Friday before MLK Day and, to this day, state employees have a four day weekend in mid January two weeks after the Xmas/New Year holiday break.

The Brits don't have holidays in honour of anyone! ... Unless you count Jesus!
