Starting A Long Weekend

President’s Day is one of the underrated holidays we have because it is the last one for almost three months! I’ve always felt that we can certainly find another group of official holidays to get us through March and April. 

St. Patrick’s Day is the easy choice for March. Everyone could wear more green, and drink more green beer over a three-day weekend even if it didn’t fall on March 17th every year. Therefore I propose that we make St. Patrick’s Day our newest federal holiday. 

April can have the federal holiday of Arbor Day. Everyone is more aware of the environment and climate change, so let’s celebrate the cause with a federal holiday status for Arbor Day. 

June is the next month that unfairly penalized us by not having a federal holiday. I propose that the Summer Solstice be declared a federal holiday. We already celebrate the Winter Solstice with Christmas, so let’s treat the Summer Solstice equally well. 

That leaves us with August. The perfect August holiday to elevate to federal status is International Beer Day. Enough said.
