Hey! It’s Flag Day

Hey! It’s Flag Day. The holiday kind of slipped my mind. But well, Flag Day isn’t exactly one of America’s “big holidays,” is it? Hence, I’m choosing to forgive myself.

Hey! It’s Flag Day

After all, a holiday set forth by President Wilson in 1916 solely to commemorate America’s adoption of Old Glory as a standard in 1777 isn’t that relevant to people of today. But perhaps in these times it should be.

In times when Americans’ love of their nation and culture is decried as Nationalist and/or Populist, maybe we should drape ourselves in the flag whenever given a reasonable excuse to do so. Our domestic enemies already consider us deplorable and regularly call us fascists anyway. 😉

Happy Easter

Have A Happy Easter

Happy Easter! And please do remember that in its original, Pagan form Ēostre, it was and is a Spring fertility celebration. Hence, one could say that hunting for Easter eggs has a more enjoyable and adult meaning than normally used. 😉
