Well, Halloween is gone for another year, thank God. Here comes Thanksgiving and then, a month later, Christmas. And then, a WEEK later, New Year’s Day. And then… it’s a dry, dusty desert of nothing until Easter, in April.
Why is this? Why are all our holidays scrunched together within a few weeks of each other? Holidays help break up the monotony, especially during the winter season when the days are cold and dark and forlorn. But how about late January, February, and March? Those months are awful, especially February. There’s no holiday at the bleakest time of the year!
Oh, I guess there’s Valentine’s Day, but that’s not really a holiday. It’s just a pink Halloween, actually. The candy still flows but it’s pink or red and in the shape of hearts. And besides, Valentine’s Day is only for a few.
Maybe we should change the holiday schedule, or at least add a holiday in February or March. What kind of holiday could it be, hm? I can’t think of anything in particular. Maybe we could move the Fourth of July to February. Holidays in the summer are needless– we’re all practically on holiday for those months, anyway. Well, I guess we HAVE to have at least one holiday in the summer, for those folks needing rv loans and good weather for travel…
ANYWAY. I don’t like all these holidays scrunched up together from November to New Year’s. BAH.
