Oh, please! A date on the calendar has no significance at all. It is just a number.
Kansas City, where I live, is said to have the second-biggest parade in the U.S. Yesterday, at the time of the parade, a hard, cold rain was pouring down. In fact, it poured for hours yesterday. March is such an unpleasant month here that it could have been snow or freezing rain. It could have been bitterfly cold. Instead we got rain. There were lightning and thunder as well.
People put much time and money into floats and units for this? People risked lightning for this?
Why don't they have the parade in a month with nicer weather?
