Holiday

Today is a holiday for some here in the good ole US of A.


President's Day.


City, County and State governments are closed. Banks are closed. Some private businesses close, some stay open. It is one of those Holidays where it is a choice whether or not to honor it.


I'm kind of confused over that one. Either it is a recognized holiday and everyone is off, or it isn't. Why have holidays where part of the population gets to celebrate it and part do not? If it is important enough to name a day after it, close down the government, why not have all people celebrate it?


But, just for the record, yes I am off today. Like I mentioned before, some non profits recognize the holiday and give their staff the day off and some do not.

I didn't even realize it was a holiday. I'd prefer that Christmas, Thanksgiving, and Independence Day were the only holidays and everything else was a normal work day.

Eh, I'm at work. But, in my case, it's better to be here in my office than stuck at home with my stepson.

Enjoy it!

I am working today, and by working I mean mostly reading blogs.

we have a different holiday, its called family day, but really, it was instituted because too many people were committing suicide. (true)

I like the idea of a "family day". We can celebrate families instead of all these dead Presidents. Who, don't get me wrong, did some great stuff 200+ years ago. Make it like Christmas and have everyone off!!

Our Northern friends are so much smarter than we are, sometimes!!
