I’ve written before about the inefficiencies of the Gregorian calendar and how the federal government sometimes “rearranges” it to create “3-Day Federal holidays”. This year presents a problem in that the Fourth of July will fall on a Tuesday next week. So, the question arises, this year. . . do most Americans get a FOUR-day holiday (Saturday, Sunday, Monday and Tuesday) or do they get the weekend off, go back to work for one day (Monday) and then celebrate our nation’s birthday on Tuesday?
Given the opportunity, most Americans will opt for the 4-day weekend utilizing a vacation day if one is not provided by their employer. Whichever way you slice it, July is usually the month every year when sunshine and hot temperatures abound. Couple this with vacation days, whether scheduled or unplanned, and the resultant festive atmosphere lends itself perfectly to food. Whether it’s a picnic for just the immediate family, a full-blown family reunion or a vacation that brings you into the area, Costa’s Supermarket is stocked and waiting to serve you.
