Ten random things: January 21

Ten national holidays commemorating an individual person:

  1. Victoria Day (last Monday before or on May 24, Canada)
  2. Gandhi Jayanti (October 2, India)
  3. Mother Teresa Day (October 19, Albania)
  4. Saint Clement of Ohrid Day (December 8, Republic of Macedonia)
  5. Ratu Sir Lala Sukuna Day (last Monday in May, Fiji)
  6. Natalicio de Benito Juárez (March 21, Mexico)
  7. Birthday of Seri Paduka Baginda Yang di-Pertuan Agong (June 7, Myanmar)
  8. Ninoy Aquino Day (August 21, Phillippines)
  9. Martin Luther King Jr. Day (third Monday in January, United States)
  10. Día de Santa Rosa de Lima Day (August 30, Peru)

I didn't even realize today was King Day until I tried to take the deposits to the bank. Some damn hippie liberal I am!
