When I was a kid this was a day off from school

Things were different when I was a kid.

Have I now reached the age at which I can begin remarks with “when I was a kid…”?

And sometimes I get confused about which holidays of my youth really are still holidays.

Veterans Day? Columbus Day?

Remember when people still called it Washington’s Birthday?

I guess these days I’d take an actual celebration of pretty much any holiday, no?
