a modest Mother’s Day proposal



To make sure that no one feels left out.

And to build upon what Anna Jarvis started (a bogus holiday with no foundation in our cultural or religious traditions whatsoever).

What about a

Men’s Day?

Women’s Day?

Sons’ Day?

Daughters’ Day?

Children’s Day?

Toddlers’ Day?

Spouses’ Day?

Newlyweds’ Day?

Significant Others’ Day?

Best Friends’ Day?

Coworkers’ Day?

Grandparents’ Day?

Great-Grandparents’ Day?

Grandchildren’s Day?

Uncles’ Day?

Aunts’ Day?

Nephews’ and Nieces’ Day?

Cousins’ Day?

Senior Citizens’ Day?

Departed Loved Ones’ Day?

Ancestors’ Day?

Think of the commercial possibilities!

    Sweden has a “Name” day … all the common first names have a special day to acknowledge all the “Rogers”, all the “Brads”, etc. In our busy and distracting culture, it seems a good idea to acknowledge the real people that are close to us … like your list! NOT to stimulate the economy, but simply to remember important people in our lives. REAL people who are more important to us than George Washington, or Mohammed, or even Jesus Christ! Lest we forget that!
