Holiday Mondays


It is the holiday season for sure.

I made an astounding discovery the other day. Three of the next four Mondays are federal holidays.

I was amazed. Here they are:

December 26 - Christmas Observed (Yes, Virginia, Christmas is a Federal Holiday and so you can say Merry Christmas without offending anyone).

January 2 - New Years Observed.

January 9 -Not a holiday!

January 16 - Martin Luther King Jr Birthday.

There are 10 federal holidays each year and three of them are crammed into a four week span. This year they are on Monday, as they will likely be next year as well. That makes for a convenient three-day weekend.

If only the weather were warmer and I could hit the golf course.

If only I were more motivated and could finish my Christmas shopping.

Happy Holidays--there are three to enjoy!
