“Observed”

I find federal holidays that fall on weekends so confusing. Is Veteran’s Day Saturday? Or Monday? On Friday?

This gets even more annoying when it is a church holyday. Sometimes if it falls on Saturday or Monday, the Mass-obligation gets cancelled by the D.C. bureacracy because Catholics can’t go to church too often.

But since here we’re talking about people who’ve served America, let’s just make it four days of tribute. So Vets’s Day is Friday, Saturday, Sunday, Monday.

Which is probably how the store sales go, and that’s the most important part of holidays anyway.
