^That is the first time I've seen someone underline a quote. No, I didn't even know Smith had something to do with that.
This short topic detour was expected. After all, holidays are closely knit with religious and political observations.
Holiday post two of the holiday thread. =D
We've only got two holidays today:
Be Bald and Be Free Day
President Dwight Eisenhower's Birthday
Be Bald and Be Free Day is, quite obviously, a holiday to celebrate Baldness, and for those not open about balding or being bald to be open about it. A... strange holiday to say the least. I doubt too many people would display their baldness if it's natural balding rather than a wanted lack of hair. This is one of the many "be proud of something that has nothing to do with pride" days that are unnecessary to say the least.
Dwight Eisenhower's Birthday isn't technically a holiday, but it is my holiday of choice regardless (considering what few choices I have today :P). Dwight David "Ike" Eisenhower, the 34th president of the USA for two terms from 1953 to 1961, was certainly president at a key time in history, being that he had some business to deal with relating to the nuclear arms race, and obviously, the Cold War in it's entirety.
Not only did he perform adequately as president in an important point in time, but he certainly made plenty of political accomplishments as well, such as his successes in foreign policies and pushing forward in getting rid of segregation, Little Rock Nine being a perfect example.
Might as well honor someone who did some good things for an entire country with my holiday pick of the day, yeah?
