We have a thread to "celebrate" the Independence Day of Americans, but not one for the 1st July...

Today's the day of my move to Manhattan! I had the choice between NYU and some LA schools and I choose NY.

I'm posting from the airport actually, but now the question is: do I casually cheer for the Rangers or go across the river and cheer for the Islanders?

From my American friends and family, I'm told no they have to go back to work on Friday or burn off a vacation day.

I don't know why but I was under the impression that they would all get Thurs./Fri
...like Thanksgiving. Can't just shut down the economy for an extra day though.

This begs the larger question on holidays: Why haven't all holidays adopted the Thanksgiving model... falling on a Monday/Friday to assure a long weekend.

That is what we should all be doing... I think next year Canada Day will be on a Tuesday... This is a good political issue... probably steal a few votes with such a platform.
