Holidays I'D rather celebrate THAN SINGLES WEEK

Hmmm... is it just me... or do others think it's completely unnecessary to declare a whole week to people who enjoy their freedom every day of their lives?

Singles week is almost as unnecessary as these other high-ranking holidays:

National Pig Day
Peanut Butter Lover's Day
Old Stuff Day
I Want You To Be Happy Day
National Anthem Day
Holy Experiment Day - Yes it has a MySpace site
Multiple Personalities Day - When you do something crazy and it's OK
National Frozen Food Day
National Crown Roast Of Pork Day
Be Nasty Day
Panic Day
Festival Of Life In The Cracks Day
Worship of Tools Day
Alfred Hitchcock Day
National Potato Chip Day
Everything You Think Is Wrong Day
Everything You Do Is Right Day
Supreme Sacrifice Day
Proposal Day
Festival Of Extraterrestrial Abductions Day
National Goof-off Day
National "Joe" Day
Something On A Stick Day

But we don't get to "enjoy" our freedom every other day of our lives.

Because like it or not, single people...

get the pity stares

are repeatedly asked "if they've found someone"

are set up on blind dates from hell

have to explain to their parents time and time again why they are single

have to learn the art of graceful decline in order to stay single

and we have to watch couples cuddle and snuggle in public all the time.

so YES, we DO deserve an ENTIRE DAY where we can not only continue to be single, but where we can actually CELEBRATE it.

I declare Sept. 19th "I WANT CHRISSIE TO BE HAPPY DAY" and on this day, I proclaim a new rule: All Chrissies must embrace singledom for all its perks (minus a week-long bogus holiday) ... including:

The pity stares (because at least they aren't thinking -- she's MARRYING THAT GUY?!)

The "have you found someone" comments (of jealousy)

Blind dates (material for your short lived career on Comedy Central)

Watching couples snuggle (or painfully fake it when one falls out of love), etc.

It is your DAY, or week, or year, (OK I'll stop there before you get depressed again)... so enjoy it!

But don't flaunt it too much. Because Valentine's Day is right around the corner and payback is a... :-)

i sense a bit of jealousy on both sides of this matter.

those "taken" wouldn't find a "singles' week" so "unnecessary" if they didn't resent it in some capacity.

and those "single" wouldn't flaunt their "oneness" to all those "taken" if they weren't just a little bit jealous of what they don't have.

maybe it's just human nature... "the grass is always greener" or whatever.

or maybe we all need to figure out what we really want, and do something about it.

of course, it could all just be playful gibing...

eh... i don't know what i'm talking about.

National Talk Like a Pirate Day was earlier this week. That's always a favorite.

My boyfriend's birthday (March 23) falls on Cuddle a Kitty Day.

My birthday (Sept. 18) falls on National Play-doh Day.
