Kage Baker loved any excuse for a holiday.
We celebrated, in our time, National Oreo Day; St. David’s Day; the Queen’s Official Birthday; Shakespeare’s actual Birthday; National Pancake Day as well as Shrove Tuesday; and the Day the Buzzards Return To Hinkly, Ohio. Plus lots of other things that crossed our path and took our fancy.
When without a handy holiday but desirous of a celebration, Kage would declare it St. Ermenwyr’s Day. The nice thing about that holiday is that you can do almost anything to commemorate it, as long as you do whatever you do to excess.
Today, Dear Readers, is International Women’s Day. And I am taking it off.
Have a good time!
