july xiv, mmviii

Did you know that the July 14th holiday still isn't recognized by our "pretty, great state?" As a result, over 93% of this state's employers do not give their employees the holiday off.

Hopefully our July 14th celebrations this year will help change that. This year's 14th should be better, bigger, bulgier, butter and better than any other 14th thus far celebrated. I invite you personally to come and personally revel in all that the 14th of July represents. Through your celebrations you can support what the founders of the 14th of July stood for: freedom, perseverance, loyalty, agility, burning, holidayness, buoyancy, religious persecution, truth soundingness and awesomeness.

The celebrations will begin at my house. A schedule follows:

6:55pm -- slip 'n slide (if it still exists and I can find it) and consumption of Joe's leftover lemonade.
7:40pm -- chocolate milk drinking contest
8:30pm -- "the burning of the chaff"; bring something you want burned!
10:00pm -- march on the capitol to attain official 14th holidayness.

Please, remember to not dress warmly! You'll probably actually want to dress wetly. If you have any questions, please let me know.

Also, in the comments section for this post, please tell me what words you would use to describe what July 14th represents to you.

Are there going to be Bastille Day crafts? Because it really looks like you are holding a glue gun.

I just want to add this: 'St Swithin's day, if thou dost rain, for forty days it will remain; St Swithin's day, if you be fair, for forty days 'twill rain nae mair.' So, you know, that seems like a pretty important holiday. I don't see what that has to do with burning stuff though. ;)

Hope it was a rockin' good time. I was at the food bank with the ward, tying knots in plastic bags of apricots. What's wrong with that...I think that's an acceptable way to celebrate our mid-July holiday...
