It's happy end of fiscal year. Personally, I think that might be offensive to socialists, but here we go.

Actually, this really did surprise me a little although I'm not sure why. The breakdown of holiday is holy day although nobody recognizes that anymore.

The atheists in Warren got their "Keep Saturn in Saturnalia" sign up in the Mound RD median at Chicago RD before the guy has gotten his nativity set up, if he's going to do it this year. They think they are clever and funny.
