Happy Labor Day! The unofficial end of summer. Bummer. Read on to see where it falls on my list.
- Christmas – the best time of the year. Presents, Christmas music, family, people are happier and nicer.
- Thanksgiving – food, family, and football. Plus it is the start of the Christmas season.
- 4th of July – friends, food, and fireworks. The only holiday besides the first two where I do anything special.
- President’s Day – this one gets a high spot on the list because of its proximity to my birthday. A guarantee if I’m working I get a three-day weekend to celebrate.
- Halloween – it was more fun when the kids were little, but I enjoy sitting on the porch reading while waiting for the next round of kids.
- Memorial Day – the unofficial start of summer. Losing its luster as the kids get older and summer isn’t quite as special.
- New Year’s Eve/Day – I have not gone to a NYE party in years. There is football, but it also marks the end of my favorite time of the year.
- Easter – another one that is better when the kids were little. It was spring break time and we had Easter egg hunts.
- Labor Day – end of summer and most years a day my wife decides we need to spend working around the house.
- Veterans Day – this was probably higher when the kids were in school and I was working. One of the few days I was off work and the kids were in school.
- Columbus Day – see above.
- MLK Day – I’m glad it exists, but it is middle of winter and I’m not likely to leave the house,
Did I forget any? How would you rank them?
