I remember growing up when holidays actually fell on the date they were supposed to fall on. February was a good month because we had Lincoln's AND George Washington's birthdays. Then some wise guy came up with Presidents' Day.
These days I've grown to expect the holiday to be on a Monday, and that my trash day will be bumped to Friday. (Of course I remember about half the time.)
But Veteran's Day seems to have escaped the Monday format, so tonight is not a "normal" Tuesday night for DC kids and Federal types.
Need something to do?
