Are we going to do parades in America anymore or have they been proclaimed (by whomever) to be politically incorrect? Has anyone broken the news to the people in New Orleans?
Irrespective of America’s new found hatred of parades, there will be celebrations in China and throughout Asia to usher in the Year of the Dog. They will have parades, burn “hell money” in the whole day-of-the-dead meets the dog year thing.
Those of you who who want to combine St. Valentine’s Day and the Year of the Dog can do it doggy-style, in honor of both. What better way to combine the two? Maybe light off some fireworks while you’re at it – if you don’t have fireworks, create your own.
What will I be doing to celebrate? Nothing – just working, trying to earn another crust of bread to stave off the cold, the coyotes, the buzzards, the tax collectors (but I repeat myself), etc. With all the love and parties, nobody will have the strength remaining to enjoy President’s Day.
