I love Star Wars. I love puns. Yet “May the Fourth Be with You” irritates the ever-loving shit out of me.
I’m sitting here trying to think of any fake/internet meme holidays I like, and apparently I’m just a grouch. IDGAF about Pi Day despite being a math geek. Talk Like a Pirate Day gets old fast. Festivus was amusing until someone decided to actually take the day to air grievances at me. I want to like the days that involve free ice cream and donuts, but I never end up actually getting any.
What fake holidays do you love or hate?

I loathe Valentines Day, Mother’s Day *and* Father’s Day (yes, I’m in a relationship and yes, I have kids.) But Valentines Day seems to exists solely to make single people and men feel inadequate while selling a ridiculous amount of cards and ‘cute’ gifts. Mother’s Day is more of the cute and the fluffy and the pink and the zomg mum would LOVE a CD of cheesy lerve songs because that’s what mums like. And here, here’s a selection of mother appropriate books full of manly men and perfect mothers, neither of which you are or have at home. Father’s Day is marginally less annoying, due to the plethora of inoffensive power tools which have the benefit of being useful, and a nice selection of books about serial killers.
But the pressure to DO SOMETHING for each of those three occasions – aarrrgggghhh.
Joining the Star Wars day love. I was clothes shopping yesterday and Uniqlo was blasting the John Williams scores. Honestly, that should be the only way you ever try on clothes. Nothing makes you feel more like a galactic warrior.
Y’all already know this, but cinco de mayo. It’s really only real in Puebla. And just an excuse for Americans* to act like douches.
*not all Americans.
(And I am also guilty of loving Star Wars Day and Pi Day. I love pirates but Talk like a Pirate day got old fast)
I’m lazy with “real” holidays so except for Free Comic Day (is that a holiday) I usually pick up on them after they happened. Which is a shame, when it comes to ice cream.
I am totally guilty of loving Star Wars day.
That’s ok, I love you anyway! ;)
