Today is Continental Interdependence Day. This past Thursday was National Nacho Day. Tuesday is Corduroy Appreciation Day. It’s that time of the year, people: time for crazy “fake” holidays. They’re “fake” in that they’re from a book, a marketing scheme introduced by the Big Nacho lobbyists, or they’re about a fabric that has been traditionally associated with 14th Century gigolos (respectively). But this is how it happens, people: in 100 years, one of these holidays will be a real holiday, celebrated by whole nations, the reasons for which lost in the fog of history. Or not.
