For non-native New Englanders, Patriots’ Day commemorates the battles of Lexington and Concord during the Revolutionary War. The civic holiday is celebrated in Massachusetts and Maine, and is always celebrated on the third Monday in April.
If this sounds like a totally BS holiday to you, that’s because it is. It also happens to be the day that the Boston Marathon is run – so to many locals it’s known merely as Marathon Monday. Whatever you want to call it, it’s merely an excuse for Bostonians to drink on a Monday.
Valentine’s Day is a rough day for anyone out there who is single. Trust me, I know. I’ve been there; and she’s a relentless b*tch. If it helps, remember that couples are boring and gross and will be waiting to sit down to dinner at a restaurant they’ve either already been to or are going to spend way too much money on for a crappy Valentine’s Day menu. Yes, I can still look through the haze that overcomes couples and both sympathize and empathize with all the single people out there. After all, this is still a holiday conjured up by Hallmark and Hershey’s… and maybe DeBeers.
So single ladies, get out there and find Mr Right Now… because you best not be looking for Mr Right on Valentine’s Day.
