Because I'm tired of not having any holidays that pertain to my personal life and beliefs, I've decided I'm going to develop a series of holidays that appeal to me, specifically. :) How's that for egocentricism? :D

So here's the first one...

I have decided that June 16th is Marco Polo in the Pool Day. Since June 16th falls on a Monday this year, Marco Polo in the Pool Day will traditionally be celebrated on the weekend closest to that date.

I'm thinking I'm going to have a Hot as Balls Day in August, which will be traditionally celebrated by going to an ice skating rink or somewhere else cold, like a walk-in refrigerator.

That is awesome.

If I do that, September is totally getting a (Calvin and Hobbes) Leaf Project Day, which will traditionally be celebrated by going outside, picking up one leaf, and spending the rest of the day watching cartoons, playing really old video games, or otherwise indulging in youthful procrastination.

At least one of your holidays has to have nothing to do with the weather to attain the highest holiday-string-status - just so you know.

"highest holiday-string-status"?

that icon is appropriate

Just trying to make the claim that groupings of holidays that have less validity outside of their belief systems seem to be celebrated the most frequently.

Re: that icon is appropriate

you made your point worded more difficultly than necessary, especially at 2 AM
