    I suppose, but celebrating the adoption of a symbol seems too removed, unlike Thanksgiving or 4th of July or Christmas where an actual event is being celebrated.


    BTW, to this day, it still disgusts me to see people put those cheap little American flags on their cars and let them get all tattered and faded, that's not patriotism being exercised, it's consumerism, and while we may argue that America and consumerism go hand in hand, it doesn't excuse the disrespect to the flag.

    I feel that way about $2 flags made in other countries bought at the local mini-mart and yet even still I don't give a crap about flag day.

    Not to send this into the RP by leaning the thread too much towards the political, but I do update the condition of my car flags in my back window, and save the old ones up to give to the local VFW to properly dispose of them.

    I know the dates/seasons of the major holidays (Christmas, Easter, Thanksgiving, Independence Day [figure that one out ], Valentine's, St. Patrick's, New Year's, Cinco de Mayo, Presidents', MLK Jr., etc.) and most of the "less-appreciated" ones (Veterans' Day [11/11... used to be Armistice Day], Memorial, Groundhog, Earth, etc.), while forgetting when others are scheduled (Boxing Day, Arbor, Patriot, Cesar Chavez, Guy Fawlkes [sp?], Bastille, etc.). That was simply my idea for starting the thread, along with learning of some int'l ones.
    CU Later. Contracted Universe? Later. :(

    Ease up on the P&R, this thread may get shut down, better to start a new thread in the pit.

    February 2nd - Duck-Billed Platypus Day! All hail the platypi!

    May 25th - Towel Day! This holiday should be celebrated by watching "South Park" re-runs in which Towelie is the main character or he plays a key role in the story line.
    May the force be with you.

    Summer Solstice
    My sister who will be going to a birthday on Saturday says they will also be celebtrating Summer Solstice. Mentioned something about a drum circle.
    Don't know much about Pagan holidays, but it sounds like a lot of fun.
