The alt-left in California are changing Columbus Day to Indigenous Peoples Day, so to follow suit, let’s dispense with celebrations that bear more than a whiff of alt-left-like “direct action.” Created by socialists, Labor Day sounds more like something the former Soviet Union would celebrate than the good old USA. Seeing as how all things Russian are on the outs, let’s instead call this three-day holiday weekend a celebration of the end of summer.
Let’s celebrate September.
Days are cooler. Nights are even cooler. Kids are back in school, giving parents a much-needed respite. Football’s back. (Yeah, I know. Football is about as popular now as the Russians. Too bad. Enjoy it while you still can.)
Pumpkin flavoring is back, already showing up in bagels and lattes. Before long, we’ll break out our down jackets, drink hot chocolate and apple cider, and take long drives in the countryside to admire the colorful leaves.
The Dog Days of Summer are past (let’s hope).
Enjoy your holiday weekend!
