Have your day your way

-A A +A
By John Pawlak

“A small Greek letter, with irrational beauty, one without an end.”

Yes, my fellow nerds, that is indeed a Pi-ku that I wrote in tribute to Pi-day. As isolated as revelers of the number pi usually are, Pi-day was national news earlier this month.  Pi-kus (a haiku written about pi) abounded as did pi-limericks and of course pie eating celebrations.

And yet, how many people went marching in town parades to celebrate the corndog? (National Corndog Day was March 21.) While many citizens did take time to contemplate the historical significance of Brutus Day (March 15 – the Ides of March), others were partying it up in Hinckley Township at the Annual Buzzard Day breakfast festival held to welcome the annual return of turkey buzzards back to Cleveland’s metroparks.

So many holidays, so few days of the year!  A century ago, there were only a dozen or so days recognized as meriting notice, and far less that had any actual festivals associated with them.  But now we have Groundhog Day, Valentines Day, Mother’s Day, Father's Day, Grandparents Day, Secretary Appreciation Day, Boss Appreciation Day, Teacher Appreciation Day, Military Appreciation Day, Squirrel Appreciation Day ... uh, OK.
