New New Year Fri, Jan 23, 2009
I think one of the first calendar modifications Barack Obama should initiate after establishing the day after the Super Bowl as a national holiday should be to change the date of New Year's Day from January 1 to whenever the winter solstice is.  That way, instead of celebrating an arbitrary calendar event, at least we would be celebrating something, in this case the transition from days that are gradually shortening to days that are gradually lengthening.  It's like Wednesday being hump day, except that instead of signaling the approaching weekend, new New Year's Day would signal the approaching spring and summer. #sociology
