President's Day is a holiday to some people as they get the day off, not for me. Not sure where or how it got started that some businesses adapted the holiday and some don't.
There are some recognized days on the calendar that are not holidays, for example: Valentine's Day, Mother's Day, Father's Day, Secretary Day, etc.
The days I wished would become holidays are Mother and Father's Day. I think those days rank higher on my list than Presidents' Day. But because President's Day serves the country, the country can pretty much write a holiday when they want to.
As I look at the Holiday schedule (2012) for work, there is a big gap between New Year holiday and the and the next holiday, Memorial Day. Yes, after New Year the next holiday should be Valentine's then Easter. But that's wishful thinking.
Then there are Holidays I think should be banned, especially, the holidays that my work don't recognize. It a selfish reason but think about it, if it's call a holiday and I am still laboring, then it definitely isn't a holiday for me. So it might as well be a regular day. Right?
Here are Self Sagacity's Thursday Two Questions #74:
1) Do you have a recognized day in mind (like Mother's Day or Father's Day, etc) that you think should be a Holiday (day off from work)?
2) Do you have a Holiday in mind that you think we should banned?
