The need to conform and be accepted often leave us feeling obliged. Straight to the point, well done, warm regards, Laura.

Well said Timothy, I only celebrate my wedding anniversary, and the death of my Lord. I try to remember all of my obligations to family and friends everyday, a very wise write in so few words. We are supposed to give from a cheerful heart not under obligation right? A fave and A7

Thanks Laura! Not against holidays, per say, just don't like the obligatory "just going through the motions" feeling that I often get on certain holidays.

So is there a holiday called "Human day"? Some certainly are NOT, like he guy who shot up Orlando!!

That Orlando situation was so sad to hear about :( ... I kinda wish they would stop talking about it so much ... at the risk of other psychos wanting to copy-cat ...

Very true, Paul! You understood this very well ...
Date: 6/23/2016 11:49:00 AM
I suppose that is where we go wrong, Timothy! It is such a pity that we have to be made aware of our daily obligations by fixing 'special days' as reminders. ~ Regards // paul

Whoops ... looks like my comment jump-skipped again. You understood this very well, Paul

I think there was a whole lot of stuff hiding behind what we get shown, myself.

Thanks Maurice. The "of it" refers to humanity. And yes, I'm enjoying the weather and the warm nights.
Date: 6/23/2016 9:49:00 AM
More clarity would help here, my friend. What does "of it" refer to? Humanity or the holiday season? Maybe neither? Few of my humorous poems relate to me, rather an editorial "everyone." Truth is, I enjoy most all foods, even as a boy. Thanks for the stop by. Hope you're enjoying Georgian weather? / M

I don't know if that is true, but it doesn't hurt to have a reminder from time to time.

A matter of perspective, I suppose ... this is a rather extreme viewpoint, but meant to make people think about the why of celebration. Reminders are nice, but sad when those days, few and far between, are celebrated merely out of obligation. Thanks for reading and leaving your thoughts, my friend!
