So let me just ask you all this: Does your town routinely do holiday celebrations on a different day than the actual holiday?
Ours does. This year (like every year we’ve lived here) our town (and the attached Air Force Base) did Fourth of July… on the Third of July.
They also routinely like to try to do Halloween on days other than October 31. I’m waiting for someone to announce that Easter will now be in August, Thanksgiving will be on January 9th and Presidents’ Day will be celebrated on the third Wednesday in May.
In any case, I hope you have a fun and patriotic Fourth of July. And I’ll be sure to wish you a Happy Saint Patrick’s Day… in September.
