This Week In Ridiculous Holidays: November 11th – November 17th

We start this week with an actual important holiday, Veterans’ Day; a day for honoring all of those who have protected our nation and our freedom. Then we follow it up with a bunch of food foolishness, including pickles, hermit cookies, raisin bran and homemade bread. Is there a food that doesn’t have a holiday?

Veterans Day

“To us in America, the reflections of Armistice Day will be filled with solemn pride in the heroism of those who died in the country’s service and with gratitude for the victory.”

– President Woodrow Wilson, 1919, in proclaiming Armistice Day (which would later become Veterans Day) on the anniversary of the end of World War I.

I honestly don’t eat that much fast food, but sometimes I just want Taco Bell.

National Button Day

I mean, they are pretty necessary in life, but I don’t know if they need a day.

Stop trying to make me outdoorsy. I am not outdoorsy.
