This is probably unusual, but I get a kick out of the "patriotic season"---Memorial Day, Flag Day, and the Fourth of July. (Probably because my birthday is July 4th.
) I like to stock my MP3 player with Sousa marches and patriotic tunes toward the end of May as I look forward to the Fourth. Also unusual for MMCers, I enjoy the summertime. I feel a drag between New Year's Day and Easter, and after July 4th, it feels like the summer is going downhill. Now that I've adopted Christmas in July, I don't get that post-Fourth letdown so much!
