Candy Day? Isn't it too soon?

After all, Halloween was just a few days ago. Nevertheless, most of the Usual Suspects insist that today is Candy Day.

We wondered whether this microminiholidayette would be better rendered as Leftover Candy Day -- but our crack research could find no support for this proposition.

Today also marks the end of Daylight Savings Time in most parts of the United States, or, if you prefer, the beginning of Standard Time. We prefer that this weekend is one hour longer than other standard, two day weekends.

There may be a tie-in between the end of Daylight Savings Time and Zero Tasking Day, another microminiholidayette offered for your convenience today. Usual Suspect The Days of the Year says it's unfair to expect us to work through that extra hour today, especially when it's just going to be snatched back from us in the Spring. The extra hour today should be devoted to "rest, relaxation and a distinct lack of work."

Sounds good to us.
