Schedules are updated every Thursday.
Welcome back to work everyone. Between the splendor of Christmas and the joy of the new year lies a few strange days. From December 26 to 30, the world returns to a normal, if a bit more seasonal, pace. For example, I have to come back here and think of content to write, but I can also get away with writing things such as “Why December 28 Should Be A National Holiday.” But what if we didn’t have to do that?
Today, in front of the honorable Beirut.com readership, I have come to make the case for why December should be a global holiday. Under this proposal, the end of year calendar will now come to look like this:
December 24 – Christmas Eve (No work)
December 25 – Christmas (No work)
December 26 – Christmas 2 (No work)
December 27 – Link Day (No work)
December 28 – New International Holiday (No work)
December 29 – Link Day (No work)
December 30 – Pre-New Year (No work)
December 31 – New Year’s Eve (No work)
January 1 – New Year’s Day (No work)
January 2 – Armenian New Year (No work)
So some of you will now be obviously thinking why? Why should December 28 be a holiday? First of all, grow up and I hate you and you’re the reason nothing is fun in the world. Second of all, vibes. Third of all, here is a list of random events I got off the wikipedia page for December 28:
– In 418, it saw the election of Pope Boniface I (funny name)
– In 1836, Spain recognized the independence of Mexico (politics)
– In 1895, William Röntgen published a paper discovering what would come to be known as x-rays (science)
– In 1931, it was birthday of Guy Debord (pretentious)
– In 1972, in the US it was declared a national day of mourning after the death of President Harry S. Truman (nuclear war criminal).
I can see that most of you are convinced by now but I will not rest my case just yet. Let us debunk some arguments against the International Holiday of December 28. Argument: productivity bla bla. Counter-argument: no. Argument: we need to run essential services, people will die! Counter-argument: no. Argument: December 28 does not exist. Counter-argument: hmm.
I humbly present this proposal for the assembled council’s consumption. #December28InternationalHoliday
