According to my computer, today is the Day After New Years Day.
That’s no surprise.
The surprise is that it’s a holiday in Quebec, Canada.
I tried to find the significance of the holiday but Google failed me.
Google told me that The Day After New Years Day is January 2.
Undaunted, I did more research.
Turns out that The Day After News Years Day is also celebrated in New Zealand, Rwanda, Romania, Cooks Islands and Samoa. Philippines observed it once in 2015 but decided it wasn’t a good idea.
I’m not from New Zealand, Rwanda, Romania, Cooks Island, Samoa or Quebec but it seems to me that this is an excellent idea. We should all celebrate the day after a holiday with day off.
Happy Day After New Years Day everyone!
… and I promise, that’s the last last last time I’m wishing anyone Happy xxxanythingxx.
At least, until February 15th.
