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.

September 16, 2010 ~ Mexican Independence Day

Happy Mexican Independence Day!!!  Okay, so if there isn't anything else to celebrate I'll celebrate the holiday of another country.  It might not be a silly holiday for them, but since I'm not Mexican I think it qualifies for me call it an unusual thing to celebrate.  I've actually been looking forward to this me a good reason to eat Mexican food which I love.
While enjoying my meal I'll listen to some great Mexican music.... For your entertainment here's a video of some song and dance to get you in the mood.
