I don’t think it’s going out on a limb to say that most holidays in America have gotten out of hand. I could spout off my complaints about commercialism and opportunists, but what it comes down to is that I LOVE holidays that involve partying and NOT having to buy presents.
So that means my favorite holidays are St. Patrick’s Day, Memorial Day, Labor Day, Halloween, Thanksgiving (OK, so you don’t “party” during Turkey Day, but there is a killer meal involved,) and of course – July 4th! Think about it – your only responsibility is to drink, eat, blow up cool crap, drink, BBQ, swim, and drink. That’s my kind of day.
So with all that said, I hope you have big plans to spend time with family and friends this holiday weekend. Sure, you should recognize the independence of our country as reason for celebration, but mainly – be glad you don’t have to battle other shoppers or try to come up with a “gift” idea. Eat, drink, relax, enjoy….and let me know, what’s your favorite holiday and why?
