*** SPOILER *** This post has the potential to make some heads explode. The months of March, April and August have no federal holidays, and October needs a replacement one, IMHO. Every other month has at least one, with January and November having two. Seems to me if we added 3 or 4 more, spread out to the months currently unrepresented, we'd have a chance of being a more civilized country. I'm saying that partly tongue in cheek. But for fun, what might some options be? Maybe March 1st could celebrate National Parks day, for Yellowstone being named first national park. Maybe April 27 could celebrate Seniors, for the day the first social security checks were issued Maybe August 15 could celebrate the Arts and artists, for the Woodstock Music and Arts Fair What would you suggest for these 3 months? What we already have are: 1 calendar flipping day -- January 1 civil rights honoree day -- January 1 presidents day -- February 2 war ending days -- May & November 2 freedom celebrating days -- June & July 1 workers honoring day -- September 1* inaccurate discovery day -- October 1** survival gratitude day -- November 1 day of celebrating just 1 religion -- December * Columbus Day is on the way out. Many cities and some states have replaced it with an Indigenous Peoples Day. This seems reasonable to me. Columbus never set foot on North America, and claimed he had actually reached Asia. The Norse are widely credited in academic circles with being the first Europeans to reach and establish one or more colonies on North America roughly 500 years earlier than the voyages of Columbus. ** Days of Thanksgiving were initially declared in the colonies every time colonists declared military victory over Natives, which often meant large scale slaughtering and displacement of the continent's original inhabitants. Other days of thanksgiving were celebrated when overcoming drought, disease, and other hardships.
