Yeah, that header is massive, isn’t it? Don’t you dare argue with my massive headers, for they are the only things that cause me to not cry myself to sleep every night with the overwhelming horror that is reality. (Just kidding, reality is pretty awesome most of the time!) It’s funny that the 4th is one of the few holidays that we celebrate anymore where the meaning remains more or less intact, or hasn’t been perverted by revisionists. I guess I shouldn’t be too surprised, what with how patriotic we are.
Why the hell don’t we have a Civil War day? I mean, I know we do, but why isn’t that as big of a deal as Independence Day? Weird. Also, I think Halloween is the next most pure holiday, which is kind of hilarious considering how insanely Christian this country is. Halloween is still pretty diluted, but at least we still ostensibly follow a similar pattern (paying homage to the harvest) and not just spending way too much money on pointless shit.
