Most of us think of holidays as one of those few days our employer actually pays us to stay home. We all know the big ones: New Year's, Memorial Day, Labor Day, Thanksgiving, Christmas. And yes, some employers are a little more generous but most likely you'll have no more than 7 days a year that you consider a holiday. Depending on your religious beliefs you may add a few more to that annual list, and find that you're up to a dozen or so.
For a day to be considered a "National Holiday" it needs to be declared so by Congress. And then of course we have the "commercial holidays" that we all love, which in effect are simply days that have become popular over the years. We all love them, but for some of us that just isn't enough. Organizations, corporation, and even loosely connected groups of people can "declare" a day for any reason they choose. Some of these days catch on and become popular with the general population, some remain only recognized by their creator, and some fizzle out and become a mere memory after only a year or two.
The point is - Every day, somewhere someone is celebrating something.

August 5, 2010 ~ National Underwear Day

I'm not making it, who started this? Would you believe a company called FreshPair? Guess what they sell on the internet...Yup, they sell underwear. And surprise, surprise, they are based out of New York... Only in New York could you walk around the streets in your underwear and not have anyone notice.

So, I suppose the question of the day is boxers or briefs?

I'll keep today's blog brief but I want to let you know that I've gotten my first pair of undies for sale on the internet too....

Find those and other fun gifts at my Artamatik store!

Count down for upcoming holidays:
In 1 week - Youth Day
In 2 weeks - Aviation Day
In 3 weeks - Women's Equality Day
In 4 weeks - VJ Day
