Observing Veteran's Day

Jump to last reply

Would like to keep this non-partisan (hence posting on US instead of sparring-ring Lounge), but I'm wondering what people think about how we're observing Veteran's Day.

Aside from all the tradition big sales at retail stores, I'm surprised to find so many other things open today -- the stock exchanges, for example. On the other hand, the "real" Veteran's Day was yesterday ("11th hour of 11th day of 11th month"), so many of the usual ceremonies took place yesterday.

I've gotten tired of losing "real" holiday-days to Mondays, just to get long weekends; and kind of like celebrating whatever the holiday is on the actual day of its original designation.

On the other hand, (I have a lot of other-hands, obviously) it seems less than fully appreciative of the veterans to have business-as-usual today.

I'm really not sure how I think this should work. What do you think?
