Today is also ET culture day.

As with al things UFO there are sites that just get this day plain wrong. Check this one out.

So where did it really come from?

Quote

Celebrated every 2nd Tuesday in February, the unorthodox holiday was the brainchild of New Mexico state representative Daniel Foley in 2003.

According to his official proposal, which was approved by the New Mexico House of Representatives, ET Culture Day aims to "celebrate and honor all past, present and future extraterrestrial visitors."

Happy E.T. culture day to all!  Too bad we don't get presents from E.T. or the day off!

Beware what you wish for. If an E.T. reads your post here, you might get more than 1 day off.  :D

This holiday seems as grounded in reality as Christmas :santa::alien:

It does lack the revenue streamed associated with Christmas and the really great story telling that happens with Christmas

Right, but that isn't christmas, and has nothing to do with stories about either the big man who give toys to children or the old bearded man in the sky that judges you.

It is now, but iirc, that is because some Calendar drift happened over the last 2000 years (especially before we switched to the Gregorian Calendar) and during Roman it was on the 25th (after all it was the major feast day of Dies Natalis Solis, Birthday of the Sun, before it became Christmas)

The calendar has changed a lot over time. In the past the first day of the year was  March 1. Leap days were added at the end of the year. Now leap days get added into the middle of the calendar year.

Quote

The name of March comes from Martius, the first month of the earliest Roman calendar.

Well should they not make an annual appearance for everyone? Afterall the ET's should be able to celebrate as well. :)

I think the "holiday" or commemorative day was set up to get attention for the events that happen in Roswell every July.  A new way to attract tourists.
