Re: Bizarre American Holidays
What's so bizarre about Australia Day (26th Jan)? It's our national holiday. On the other hand, Independence Day -- now THAT'S a bizarre holiday.

Re: Bizarre American Holidays
Uhh.. October 4th is also National CB Radio Day.. As decreed by President Jimmy Carter in 1976.

Why October 4th? Because it's 10-4!
