This Week In Ridiculous Holidays: September 16 – September 22

I feel like we have been short on good food holidays lately, which is probably good as we head into the winter and I put on a little of my “I live in New England and it’s really cold here” insulation weight. But I will definitely be getting some pepperoni pizza…
