There is a very political reason why we celebrate these holidays in the manner we do that I'm going to leave out of the thread for obvious reasons, but I will say this-people have very little free time these days to do the things they enjoy like grilling with friends and family and going to baseball games. I don't begrudge anybody for spending a federal holiday doing things that make them happy instead of sitting at home and being sad about something they can't change.
