Happy Arbitrarily Chosen Holiday


Not everyone disagrees with me:

New Years is a stupid holiday if you think about it. All we’re really celebrating is a date on a calendar that was chosen arbitrarilly. The Gregorian calendar (yes this blog is just an excuse for me to use the word “Gregorian”) could have just as easilly be written with December as the first month instead of January. Then at least we wouldn’t have to wait 50 days to play the dang Rose Bowl!
