Y'know how, when fall rolls around and it gets close to Halloween, everybody starts complaining about how the holidays all run together? And there'll be cartoons in the paper about the entire last quarter of the year being one big celebration of Hallothankmas or Turkeychrisween or whatever natalie portmanteau the cartoonist has come up with?

Notice how you rarely hear about any of that past Halloween, and not at all during December, when the last of the turkey leftovers have been finished off and everything is solid Christmas-Christmas-Christmas for most of the rest of the month?

Silly people. :}

I call it the block party, the string of holidays from Columbus Day right to Martin Luther King Day. Personally, I celebrate the end of that with a trip to FurCon. :>

I still have left over duck from Thanksgiving!

I doubt I'm going to want to try to eat it now though. o.o

Your icon reminds me: Do you plan to see The Squeakquel? It's getting even worse reviews than I expected.

At least we Canadians have a breakin there (well, there is Remembrance Day, but it doesn't really have the big "OMG let's CELEBRATE!!!!" that Christmas, Halloween, and US Thanksgiving has. (Canadian Thanksgiving, btw, doesn't seem to be as ... over the top ... as yours.)

If you think about it, every month* (except June, August and March or April depending on when Easter/Good Friday falls - although if you play your cards right, each holiday will land on separate sides of the month divide and you don't have to worry) has a federal holiday in it.

(*Stats good for Canada only, YMMV, but I think the same holds true for the US as well (is Flag Day a federal holiday?))

Canadian anything doesn't seem to be as over-the-top as ours. :}

Flag Day is not officially a federal holiday, although apparently Pennsylvania celebrates it as a state holiday.
