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 3, 2010 ~ College Colors Day

This is one of those "moving" holidays... in other words it falls on September 3rd this year, but the holiday is actually the first Friday of September.

Pretty self explanatory I would think...wear your college colors today.  If you didn't attend colleges, wear the colors of whatever college you feel attached to.

College students have been the perpetrators of some curios fads and crazes over the years.  Let's see there's been - raccoon coats, pole sitting, swallowing gold fish, cramming a bunch of people into a phone booth, streaking....ummm, aren't these supposed to be educated people?

Have fun, enjoy the upcoming week end and wear your colors proudly!
