June 25, 1606

On this day in 1606 St. Jansday is forbidden. I’m pissed. No one knows what St. Jansday was celebrating or why it was forbidden. Marcia, Marcia, Marcia. It had to be the day when whines were allowed and the beautiful were required to bring the almost pretty various tasty pastries and chilled glasses of Pinot Gris as they lounged and watched the less fortunate mill around at any one of the officially sponsored St. Jansday Festivals as they played pin the football on the nose of your annoying sister.

This holiday may have been banned due to the large number of evil villains and their assorted minions that found their true calling on this day.
