St. Patty's day-wait no,you can drink that day and not be treated like a lush.
Labor day-well as a kid this always meant "back to school" now it means a 3 day weekend. so no.
And believe me I have spent a few valentines day's single and I guess I may have been a little blue that day.I don't know which one I would say is the most pointless to me. is there a kids day?? if so then that one!

No holidays are pointless to me. Any day I'm still alive & kicking is a holiday to me! I think everyday is "National Something or Other Day" if you get on the internet & find out. Some of those are probably lame or pointless.

I always thought Columbus day was the celebration of Ohio.

Now that I have a groundhog of my own, I think I can show my appreciation and we can take note of their shadow ANY day of the year. We resent the social pressure to observe my groundhog's shadow on this one particular day. It's just an excuse to sell cards and movies. /joke

I agree with you 100 percent. I think I'll start a new holiday; Hermit Crab Appreciation day. Everyone can see who has the most intellegent pet crustacean, and for once it will be fun to be crabby.

People might kill me, but I think Mothers day is not really my fav holiday only because I have an inlaw that acts like a diva around mothers day. She plans her own mothers day, to her son: "we are going here and then we are doing x, y, z." Can you believe that? But my mother is so easy, I get her a little gift, a card and its over. There is not a "child day," so I don't understand "mothers/fathers day." There is already birthdays, so I don't feel the need to spend a ton of additional funds. I think flowers is good enough as mothers day isn't a REAL holiday. Don't mind my venting. Its just unpleasant.

Valentines day is the next runner up.

Just a thought: Why do I get gifts for my birthday? Shouldn't my mother be the one getting gifts for going through an unmedicated labor & delivery & for raising me for the first 20 years of my life? I never appreciated my mother until I became a mother myself.

I've a vague recollection of something like this before, but for the benefit of our newest members, I'll throw it open again!!!!
Agree that these aren't really classic holidays, but I dislike the Hallmark created celebrations such as "grandparents day", "sweetest day", "secretaries day", blah, blah, blah. Treat people nicely every day is my philosophy. You can't make up for being a jerk with a card saying sweet things once a year. (Sorry, I know I sound cynical here!)
