Setting the Table

I would like New Years Day moved to March 1st. December is too crowded for events. The months that are named after numbers 7, 8, 9, and 10 will make sense again. January can be a month of rest. February a month of reflection, preparation, and celebration for the new year. And March is when spring begins.

or perhaps Beltane. Traditionally the new year began with the first planting.

The pagans celebrated new year in the spring, hence the derogatory title.
Just like xmas was just winter solstice and fathers day is summer solstice in the patriarchy.

Yule - winter solstice. That’s always made more sense to me.

Unless we make Dec 21st a holiday for winter solstice. Jan 25th Christmas. And make March the beginning of the calendar year. Or, we shift the names of months two months back so winter solstice falls in New February.

Mumbo jumbo makes no sense!
All holidays are ridiculous it's a damn money grab !
Eat whenever you want, celebrate whenever you want !
You need to be told when to set a nice table and be with people you love.
