Someone, I have no idea who, also decided to make November 11 Singles Day. There are 365 days in the year. Why would anyone select a day set aside to honor our military and change it to a day to encourage single people to buy things for themselves in order to make them happier? What’s next? Married Day? Aunt Day? Uncle Day? Not Married but Living Together Day? Engaged Day? Friends With Benefits Day?
I’m one who thinks that three days a year to be patriotic isn’t asking too much of the populace. We have July 4th, Memorial Day, and Veterans Day. If you want a Singles Day, put it on a different day. Valentine’s Day comes to mind.
Thank you, veterans, for your past and present service! I particularly remember my daughter, her husband, our own Susan Kaye, my uncles, and my brothers for their service.
