Today Should Be A Holiday: National Past-Time DaySubmitted by Jaktober on Mon, 02/04/2013 - 16:22
Full disclosure: I am not working today.
That being said, I'm glad I knew I would have today off. There are some 7 million people that skip work today.
Whether or not "my" team is in the game, I typically enjoy Superbowl parties. They are like neighborhood Thanksgiving. Lots of food, football on TV...Thanksgiving.
While I think we should all think more, I think there is a time and a place. We give our minds a rest from time to time to enjoy the trivial nature of culture. And to enjoy the company of the people in your lives.
And so, I wrote this article and added some other Welfare ideas (a paid Federal holiday would fall under the concept of Welfare...would it not?).
What do you guys think of Holidays in general? What do you think of the of the other proposals in my article?
