There are times that I wonder whether the Hallmark Corporation just starts making up holidays as an excuse to sell more greet cards. But then I stop to analyze each of the holidays in order to find the significance for us celebrating. Granted, some of those are a stretch like Chinese New Years. Is it really that important to celebrate a country using a different calendar? And who exactly made this the year of the pig? I could have justified its inclusion on the calendar if they would have said it was the year of the Diamondback but the year of the pig? That is totally messed up. I didn’t come to bash pigs though; I came to talk about the holiday we are celebrating today – President’s Day.
