Holidays.

Post by Mbast1 on Mon Dec 24, 2012 5:12 pm

I don't know what anyone's views are, but I just wanted to wish everyone a Merry Christmas, Happy Kwanzaa, Winter Solstice, or whatever other holiday you celebrate (I think Hannukah is over). Hope you all have a great 2013, too!
Mike

I wasn't aware we'd already had one that wasn't up to scratch. Nobody tells me these things.

Well, I was very disappointed with the last 2013. Luckily, it's now been rebooted...

And here I thought this would be a thread about exotic vacations and adventures. Phooey.

By the way, Bastille Day is coming up . . . this is the perfect time to sharpen your guillotine's blade!

The 14th happens to also be National Nude Day. Coincidence? You be the judge!

2013 was less than stellar for me.

We should all post pictures of tasteful artistic nudes on National Nudes Day. I am not in favour of Bastille Day as I like Queen Elizabeth II, who is mint.

Apparently National Nude Day is July 14th. You learn something new every day. Not a widely celebrated holiday, it appears...

Don't forget, tomorrow in National Nude Day.

Has everybody already picked out what outfits they're going to wear? Is anybody having a black tie cocktail party to celebrate it?

What, you mean you're going to pile them all on the floor and crawl around underneath them? For how long? Until the Moon rises?

Hey, it's a little after 2:00 p.m. for me, and since it's not completely over, I don't need to add in "belated".

Yeah, but it's half past seven as far as St Swithin's concerned. Or it would be, if he wasn't dead.

But, how did you celebrate St. Swithin's Day?

Did you send out St. Swithin's cards? Decorate the house and put up a St. Swithin's apple tree? Sing St. Swithin's Day carols? Eat traditional St. Swithin's Day food, like eggs sunny-side up? Play "Pin the Umbrella on St. Swithin"?

Now here's a good reason for a holiday: on July 17, 1955, Disneyland opened in Anaheim, California.

I've never been, but I've seen photos of the place and all those people dressed as giant mice always freaked me out. Enough to give a child nightmares, I'd have thought.

But, for some reason, kids often seem to love that crap. They'd be happy if their stuffed animals suddenly came to life and wanted to play; adults would break out the sub-machine guns and flame-throwers and try to destroy the Hellspawns.

And for Sunday July 20th it looks like we get
* Moon Day
* National Lollipop Day
* National Ice Cream Day (3rd Sunday in July)
* Ugly Truck Day
but these may only be U.S. celebrations.

However, it was on July 20th in 1189 that Richard I of England was officially invested as Duke of Normandy, and both Rex Williams and Ed Giddins were born on July 20th (but not in the same year).

Happy Moon Day, everybody! All hail the glorious celestial orb which nightly bathes us in silver effulgence (except when there isn't a moon).

But please don't celebrate Moon Day by mooning strangers.

(And I don't know if they get any stranger than Tony.)

Apparently he was named after a nickname for an oddly curled little toe of his mother's.

Yup! Can't believe he kept the name too. Being named after a toe is just insulting, whereas lots of girls are indirectly named after the moon (Diana, Cynthia, Phoebe, Delia, etc).

Have you heard much of Frank Zappa's music?

Dreamed I was an Eskimo
Frozen wind began to blow
Under my boots and around my toes
The frost that bit the ground below
It was a hundred degrees below zero...

And my mama cried
And my mama cried
Nanook, a-no-no
Nanook, a-no-no
Don't be a naughty Eskimo
Save your money, don't go to the show

Well I turned around and I said "Oh, oh" Oh
Well I turned around and I said "Oh, oh" Oh
Well I turned around and I said "Ho, Ho"
And the northern lights commenced to glow
And she said, with a tear in her eye

Friday the 26th is Carl Jung's birthday!
(So what if he died in 1961?)


It's also National Dance Day (here in the U.S., though I don't think the government recognizes it).
