I really have no idea why anyone would have a holiday just for one sport. I admit, in the US, “Superbowl Sunday” is basically a holiday, all that’s missing is for the NFL to payoff enough congressmen and I could see it happening. We really need to stop this trend or soon every day could be a holiday! Soon you’ll have holidays for Basketball Day (Nov. 6), Baseball Day, even Cribbage Day. Jai-Alai Day? Cornhole Day (the last Saturday in June)?
Hmm… would it be regional or national. I know there are many days the banks and federal offices are closed, but schools aren’t. Would people protest that their state didn’t honor National Bocce Ball Day. It would improve the economy with companies selling curriculum packets about each holiday. Soon people will start saying that we aren’t teaching the story of tiddlywinks in a historically accurate manner. Textbooks would have to change… Ouch, my head is hurting.
