Holiday Posts

ad agency holiday calendarI may not have covered all American and/or Christian holidays, but I realized that I have written several holiday-related posts over the years and reproduced a few relevant speeches & proclamations. Many are historically informative — maybe even inspirational. Some have apologetic significance. A few are just… fun. I plan to continue adding to the list, though the “biggies” will probably get the most attention. If you have a particular holiday-related topic you are curious about, let me know, and I’ll consider researching and writing about it.

Meanwhile, have a Happy ___________ or a Merry _____________! Or, maybe I wish you a solemn and respectful remembrance of ______________. Kinda depends on the occasion, doesn’t it? Be well, stay safe, and God Bless You, my friends!
