A Holiday You May Have Missed!

Every day in May is a holiday. Except one! There are serious days like National Day of Prayer and Memorial Day. There are the things-to-do days, like Free Comic Book Day (5/7), Eat What you Want Day (5/11), Red Nose Day (5/23), and National Burger Day (5/28). And then there are the biggies:

'May Day' by Tyler Humphrey (etsy.com)May Day, 5/1 – In which we celebrate by dancing lustfully around a pole in our front yards, and then going down in flames, shouting, “May Day! May Day! Workers of the world unite!”

giphyStar Wars Day, 5/4 – In which we attach cinnamon buns to the sides of our heads, wave around cardboard rolls, making “Pew! Pew!” noises, and talk with a lisp (“May the fourth be with you!”).

Moms Rule (nobleworkscards.com)Mother’s Day – In which we celebrate the person who first suckled us, and then spent the next five years shouting, “Don’t put that in your mouth!”

Cinco de Mayo in Atlantic City, NJCinco de Mayo, 5/5 – In which people in Atlantic City celebrate the way they think Mexicans do, and Mexicans smack their heads, muttering, “¡Ay, caramba! What are those loco Norteamericanos up to now?”

Headshot2And finally, the missing holiday: Cumpleaños de Mitcho, 5/12! — In which I stealthily and cleverly inform you in pseudo-Spanish that today is, in fact, my birthday!

But seriously, whatever it is you celebrate, do it con gusto, mis amigos…

Because every day is a gift!

  4. LOL, yes, Mitch, I was informed by a Facebook notification that today was your birthday. (Facebook has not yet figured out that I am ignoring it for at least 40 days.)
    I’m sure as a theater person you remember the Broadway Musical, “Mame.” I was in the chorus for that show years ago, and I remember the opening song – “It’s Today!” where Auntie Mame was telling everyone at her party that what they were celebrating was “today” – which we can (and should) celebrate ANY day. 🙂
