We should get five more holidays.
Hear me out:
Election day, first Tuesday in November
This is a big one, recently. Too bad Halloween is so close, it could maybe be the sixth holiday left out.
Black Friday, last Friday in November
It’s dumb having a Thursday holiday without getting the Friday…
Alternatively, let’s just move Thanksgiving to Friday and get New Year’s Eve as a holiday (or Christmas Eve, for that matter).
Pi day, March 14 (or 2nd Friday in March)
Like how Columbus Day is fall break-ish, mid-March is spring break-ish
Arbor day, last Friday in April
It is a good time to plant a tree. Or anything in your garden.
Flag day, June 14 (or 2nd Friday in June)
It’s like the 4th of July but a month earlier, when it’s not as hot!
So there, five days.
I mean, why not? I mean, everything seems to get furloughed every couple years and not much seems to matter.
It wouldn’t hurt to align holidays to Fridays & Mondays, too, ya know. Election day could maybe move to the first Monday in November, to make that work.
I write this today, on a holiday, of course. It would be nice.
