I have a shocking proposition... lets start a petition to cancel all of the holidays! After all, it seems that the holidays consist of the following: Memorial Day - Kickoff of the summer BBQ season! Fourth of July - Glorified day off where we blow stuff up and get really drunk. Labor Day - The end of the summer blowout! Thanksgiving - The day to get stuffed, watch football all day, and prepare for Black Friday, the traditional kickoff of the holiday shopping season! Prepare for the brotherly shove Christmas - The day that families try to get along with each other, receive gifts that receive their minutes of fame, and most get forgotten after several months. It gets to be crazy when you see the Christmas displays start going up earlier and earlier each year. While I can understand for the craft stores, most stores should not even be putting up the Christmas displays until November at the earliest. What was the purpose behind the holidays anyways?
