A 2 part proposition - - 1) Who deserves a holiday named in their honor? 2) Which current holiday should be axed to make way for this new holiday?
says Chuck_Tom on May 14th 18 (#819788)
1. President Obama
2. No current holiday, just make a new one....say May 1 and call it Obama Day.
says StarzAbove on May 14th 18 (#2760807)
That is the greatest idea yet. I hope everyone agrees. Do you think so?
says Chuck_Tom on May 14th 18 (#2760809)
lol I'm sure every member on here will agree to that. lol
says StarzAbove on May 14th 18 (#2760812)
I'm gonna go & hide somewhere...
says Chuck_Tom on May 14th 18 (#2760816)
Traitor...lol You're gonna leave me out here to fight off my haters... some friend you turned out to be. lol
says StarzAbove on May 14th 18 (#2760817)
Haters? The PC term is "those who disagree"...
Well, maybe I'll stick around.
says Chuck_Tom on May 14th 18 (#2760821)
Well I'm not PC, and proud of it. lol
You better stick around or I'll hunt you down and get out the whips.

Bold of you

Add Louisa May Alcott Day and get rid of Sweetest Day (people get enough mush from Valentine's Day.)
says JanHaskell on May 14th 18 (#2760920)
for LMA Day and DOUBLE for axing Sweetest Day - -
says Chuck_Tom on May 14th 18 (#2760921)
Benjamin Franklin. His accomplishments speak for themselves. Since Columbus didn't discover America, we'll eliminate Columbus Day.
says JerryHendrickson on May 14th 18 (#2761037)
Yes... I agree 100%
says Chuck_Tom on May 14th 18 (#2761042)
Axe Columbus Day, honestly most things would be a better replacement

Underground Railroad Day... https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Underground_Railroad
says Chuck_Tom on May 14th 18 (#2761055)
I don't give a rats ****, who.
Just hurry up and make it for this Friday, so I can have off..

Pretty tough call, since even Jesus himself doesn't have his own holiday anymore. But MLK Jr. DOES!!
says Him on May 15th 18 (#2761170)
Christmas? Easter? Jesus has 2 entire holiday SEASONS. MLK was a pretty good dude.
says JerryHendrickson on May 15th 18 (#2761201)
Christmas is now "The Holidays"...and Easter (Easter eggs are now called "spring spheres") doesn't contain Christ's name. Yeah, MLK was OK, for a riot agitator.
says Him on May 15th 18 (#2761203)
Christmas is still Christmas, no matter what the PC douchebags try to tell you. Easter doesn't need his name; it's all about his sacrifice. MLK preached peace; his followers were really bad listeners.
says JerryHendrickson on May 15th 18 (#2761211)
Ummm...christmas hasnt gone anywhere.
says Carla on May 15th 18 (#2761251)
Christmas has come back. You remember , for the past 5 or 10 years, it was "the Holidays" on TV and the media.
says Him on May 15th 18 (#2761270)
See below...not typing it again....
says Carla on May 15th 18 (#2761275)
Got it. Yeah, I was referring more to the national chain department store and Mall mindset and their TV commercials. For 10 years, you couldn't see "Merry Christmas" anywhere in any national department store. Glad the public rebelled.
It will always be Merry Christmas out of my mouth too.
says Him on May 15th 18 (#2761341)
I agree with dwf.
says Carla on May 15th 18 (#2761252)
Merry christmas has always been in the mouths of people here. It never went anywhere. Happy holidays has also always been a vocal greeting or parting words.
Hanukkah, christmas, new years. Holidays.....
