Happy Holiday?

17 Jan

I’m sure I’m just over-analyzing like I tend to do but I find it inappropriate to say “Happy Martin Luther King, Jr. Day” or “Happy Memorial Day.” I just consider them special days of reflection and tribute (not so much happiness) because they are days associated with the loss of incredible individuals.

Am I being too critical? Is there a happiness in that the men and women we honor on those days were born and so we’re thankful for that? I can see it that way, I suppose. I just feel uncomfortable when people say “Happy day!” like it’s a party or when stores offer sales associated with the days.

I guess we all reflect in our own way. As long as we take the time to remember, learn and teach our children, right?
