American Holiday Mash-Up 2015 Ahead; Getting You Ready

In case you haven’t noticed, there’s a warm front of holidays blowing through (the U.S.A.) within a week’s time ahead. So, I’d like to take this time to send out the following wishes for happy celebration.

To those of you who still value love and romance, happy Valentine’s Day (Feb. 14th).

To those of you who have a passion for patriotism and U.S. history, happy Presidents’ Day (Feb. 16th).

To those of you who are Catholic, happy Fat Tuesday (Feb. 17th) and Ash Wednesday (Feb. 18th). [For those who are less/not religious, happy Mardi Gras (Feb. 17th).]

To those of you who share a fascination with the Far East with me or who follow the Chinese lunar calendar, happy Chinese New Year (Feb. 19th), the year of the wood sheep.

And, to those of you who are romantic, patriotic, Catholic, Chinese enthusiasts, happy Valentine’s, Presidents’, Fat Tues’, Ash Wednes’, Chinese New Year’s Day. [Phew!]

[If you need some help identifying the images in the enclosed artwork: 1) The big red thing in back is a heart for Valentine’s Day. 2) That’s Abraham Lincoln with the tall hat and George Washington behind him, the 16th and 1st U.S. presidents. 3) The powdery oblong object (doughnut) leaking raspberry jelly is a traditional (Polish/Catholic) treat. 4) That’s a thumb distributing ashes on people’s foreheads. 5) I would hope the last object on the right is obviously a sheep.]
