I still think the Running of the Tik Tikkies would make a great holiday.
All the citizens in their festive clothes lining the course, the participants in their striped shirts and bandanas, all the tik tikkies with their flower garlands, the music, the racing, the smell of hot asphalt and engine exhaust, the crashing and burning...
hot asphalt and engine exhaust? anyway, that seems to be an activity rather than a holiday. so i don't see why it couldn't be added to whatever holiday gets chosen (unless the holiday's meant to commemorate something sad, but i don't think that's all that likely).
My sincerest congratulations Luanar, hopefully you son or daughter shall bring great happiness to you and your husband once it is born.
A survivalist should not be a pessimist, he should always be positive, happy and enjoying life more than anyone else because he understands that each minute of peace we have is precious and unique, and he never takes it for granted.
