All these proposals for national days is getting a bit difficult to keep track of.
I have enough trouble with birthdays.
I propose one day per year where we are free of these things, and can safely relax with the knowledge that we shouldn't be doing something or other.
Only I can't remember
which day it should be.
||Or how about combining them all into
one single, glorious day? Christmas, all
birthdays, anniversaries, labour days,
saints' days, easter (bloody awkward,
that one), national gall-bladder day, the
whole lot. Have one absolutely
alarming global annual celebration for
the whole lot, and a six-week holiday
||Change national days to national nights and keep the days free.
||Keeping track is not the point. Participating in those you enjoy is. Celebrating a day that celebrates nothing is like swimming in a bathtub. Boo.
||Everything Blumster said. [-]
||BTW, I believe that birthday and Christmas celebrations are a crock, and refuse to participate in present orgies (no, really, you don't have to, no, honestly, you shouldn't, well, OK, if you insist, I'll take it).
