A True Holiday: Armistice Day

The Armistice was an event, and thus qualifies to be a holiday, when the whole people celebrates one thing together at one time. Ideas don't do this--Veterans Day, for instance, and other things such as Pastor Appreciation (pay the man! double honor!) and National Adoption Month. GFE is, in a way, a whole new breed of holiday, I'm thinking. Peace to you, the explicit reconciliation of opposites. Charles Howard Hartman

  1. PS: Compare the argument in Pastor Meyers' 'Vere Homo'. Depictions of historical situations are allowed, by ahistorical 'icons' aren't.
