How to Celebrate Presidents Day.

I promise you that your life will be fuller and richer
if you begin celebrating the minor holidays.

Tomorrow is Presidents Day,
so why not start now?
Here is your how to guide.

1. Memorize the presidents in order.

There are only 44.

You can really do it.

If you memorize the presidents 
and pass it off to me within the next week,
I'll give you a prize.

Yes, you'll feel like you're in elementary school.

Yes, that's the point.

3. Recite or listen to a speech by a president.

And then think about it.

Not that long ago we lived in a world
where choosing to pursue the moon
was a daring and controversial choice.

Can you imagine that?

4. Eat something special.

Like jelly beans--Reagan loved them.

Or Mamie Eisenhower's fudge recipe.

Just something special.

If it's not presidents related,
then talk about presidents while you're eating.

5. Memorize a few presidents facts and quiz your friends.

Which president had an alligator live at the White House?

This one, if you recognize him.

In general, just think about America
and be grateful.

And spend it with me,
if you can :)
