You can check out one of my new pages:

Since when I was born, the city of Lowell, Massachusetts actually named
a day after me, I would like to put this holiday to good use. Everyone
always talks about how they wished the "holiday spirit" of goodwill
toward men and so forth were all year long. If so, what we need is a
year long holiday season!

So as to do my part to extend the holiday season by 47 days (41 if your
count New Years), as a sovreign Netizen, I have declared Feb 10th as

"Attention Internet Shoppers, you now have 47 more days to do your
holiday shopping"

ANyone else have their own holidays?
