It’s very disrespectful that we honor Martin Luther King, Jr. on a Monday regardless of whether or not it’s his birthday. The holiday should be on the actual date which is the 15th. How would you like it if I said to you “I know your birthday is on Thursday but I’m going to celebrate it on Monday because that’s more convenient for me”?
I’m just teasing about the stuff below. I don’t mean it.
We could move July 4th to Mondays if we renamed the holiday to “Independence Day”.
Why don’t we celebrate Christmas on a Monday? We don’t even know if the 25th was his birthday so why not move it?
New Year’s Day presents a real problem. We’re stuck with that one.
