Wave All Your Fingers At Your Neighbors Day

Most of the Usual Suspects agree that Thursday, February 7 is Wave All Your Fingers At Your Neighbors Day. This is supposed to promote harmony among neighbors, and it probably would, at least when compared to waving only one finger at your neighbor, if you know what we mean.

Usual Suspect says Thursday will be Dump Your Significant Jerk Day. Others, as you will recall, observed this on February 3. Either way, ladies, Valentine's Day is close upon us, and, if you're presently seeing a jerk, you may not want to be obliged to celebrate VD with him now, would you?

Other nominees for February 7 are National Fettuccine Alfredo Day and Ballet Day. If you enjoy too much the former, you'll not do well at the latter.

Wikipedia tells us Sir Thomas Raffles left Singapore on February 7, 1819 -- after just officially founding it the day before.

'Don't overstay your welcome' is a fine motto by which to live, but this seems a bit extreme, doesn't it?

Usual Suspect, tells us that the Beatles first landed in New York on February 7, 1964; they'd make their famous first appearance on the Ed Sullivan Show just a couple of days later.
