I had to pause and think about that one for a moment and then—I think—I got it.
It’s not a Labor Day thing, I don’t think.
It’s a 9-11 thing, isn’t it?
And it’s turning into a Memorial Day Sale kind of thing, isn’t it?
I don’t have a problem with getting together to honor the dead. I do have a problem with it if it turns into an excuse for a party and/or a long weekend.
*To the credit of the people who designed the Sam’s Club magazine (which is chockful of really good recipes and cooking hints, I might add, and which can be viewed on-line here), they did not include September 11th on their list of key dates in September. Am I just way off in my above supposition? Is it a Labor Day thing?
I just flipped ahead in my wall calendar and lo & behold, printed on September 11th are the words: Patriot Day.
