Another Fabricated Holiday?

Now don't get me wrong, I love the idea of having another day for getting presents, and with Mother's Day it's all about Mommies! No taking turns opening presents or other stockings hanging up next to mine.. it's all about me!!

But I can't help but wonder, just like Valentines Day, would this "holiday" even exist if it wasn't for the retailers like Hallmark and Kay's Jewelers? Who decides what qualifies as a holiday anyway?

Some ideas for new Holidays... look out Hallmark, I will collect my royalties.

National Nothing Day. The only problem is that by celebrating, we are doing something...defeating the whole purpose of a holiday for doing nothing.

Square Pizza Day. Don't you miss that from the school cafeteria?

I Love My Ipod Day. Celebrate the goodness that is multiple playlists, we've come along way since cassettes, baby!

Okay, so that's the end of my cleverness for today... Happy Mother's Day to you all!
