Hedonism Day

Half a year and 180° from Valentine’s Day

Somehow, a holiday called Valentine’s Day was invented. People express love, give presents, go out for dinner with their significant other, and transfer loads of money to the restaurant, card, and flower industries.

Hedonism Day will be the opposite. Held œ year away from Valentine's Day (the party starts the first Wednesday that falls after August 13th, and Hedonism Day is officially the 4th day, Saturday), it will be an official holiday in which you only do what you want, hang out with the people you want to sleep with, get drunk early and often, eat your favorite foods, smash things, and call people you know to say “You suck, and I am great”.

It’s a way to bring Mardi Gras, Carnaval, Spring Break, and other great world celebrations together for one officially recognized holiday that can be celebrated by anyone who chooses. Money will be transfered back to the liquor, sex, and prison industies (as well as many, many others), where it is sorely needed.

       Here in the States we have you one better -- the whole month of September before the day, and the whole month of October after the day, free of major national or majority holidays. If you feel that's too much, don't ... it's the only time that agnostics feel included as other than babysitters

       Money will be transferred back to the prisons? Since when does hedonism involve paying taxes?

       I meant that prisons get more $$ when they have more people. And lotsa people will probably go to jail during Hedonism Day/Week/Month.   

       Dangit, [reensure], I am from the States...didn't you recognize my accent? I would happily suggest a full 2+ month Hedonism SEASON (which would really be the way to go), but my ideas suffer from a lack of buns the way it is.

       "suffer from a lack of buns" Awwww.   

       Allegories come, and allegories go, but some you just feel more strongly.

       Did I mention that Hedonism Day comes with free Ketchup?

       We're not supposed to do these things every Saturday?

       Hedonism Day is EVERY day for any real hedonist.

       I thought TODAY was Hedonism Day.

       Gosh, cutting back to just 1 day a year.... hmmm, at least it's better than going cold turkey though! [+]

       Sounds like a typical day for me.

       Sweet, another excuse to party... and it has a catchy name too.
