Only here in the United States do we celebrate holidays from other countries.
It’s not the fact that we credit these countries or their peoples for their parts in our history.
It’s not that we want to keep people happy in those countries.
No, it’s the fact that we’ve figured out how to consume large quantities of alcohol during these holidays.
Perhaps that’s the way to achieve peace on this planet: create a drinking holiday for every country on Earth, we’d be too busy for war and the only politicians elected would be the ones offering yet another holiday to drink on.
Thanks for reading, I hope no one has been offended by this post, it’s intended to be humorous.
