Redneck Calendar....

The Redneck Calendar

January 1- New Year's Day
Bring in the New Year with black-eyed peas and ham hocks. Eating black-eyed peas brings money and good luck. The ham hocks just make 'em taste better!

February 2 - Groundhog Day
Target Practice Day - We don't mess around with ground hogs or other varmints.

February 10 - Super Bowl
Southerners love their football! College football is preferred, but it is possible to get worked up for the Super Bowl with enough beer and a Southern team in contention.

February 12 - Lincoln's Birthday
Southerners don't celebrate this one. He was born in Kentucky, but later turned Yankee.

February 14 - Valentine Day
Don't forget to go by the drugstore and get your honey a heart-shaped box of candy with a plastic flower on top to let her know how much you think of her.

February 22 - Washington's Birthday
Another Dead President's Day. He was officially Southern, but not a good ol' boy. Those ruffles and wigs ain't country...

March 17 - St. Patrick's Day
Many Southerners are Scotch Irish. Those who are not claim to be and have another good excuse to drink beer.

March 23 - Easter
Easter Bunny Day - Everyone should get "slicked up" and go church at least once a year whether they need to or not. 

May 11 - Mother's Day
Be sure to call your mama or get her a card to thank her for birthin' you.

May 26 - Memorial Day
First holiday weekend of summer - Good time to take the boat and go to the lake.

June 16 - Father's Day
Get Pop some Red Man chewin' tobacco.

July 4 - Independence Day
Beer and firecrackers - Careful with the latter if you've had too much of the former. 

September 1 - Labor Day 
Last weekend of summer - Another good time to take the boat and go to the lake.

October 13- Columbus Day 
Last holiday to go fishing before cold weather.

October 31 - Halloween
Tradition is to play pranks and turn over the outhouse. Unfortunately, there are not many outhouses left these days, and this time-honored tradition is mostly a nostalgic memory. 

November 11 - Veteran's Day 
Drink beer and watch a patriotic movie on television to show appreciation for veterans.

November 27 - Thanksgiving
Good day to take out the dogs and pickup truck and go rabbit hunting. 

December 25 - Christmas
Get in the spirit by decorating the house with flashing lights inside and out. Make fruit cake and soak it in whiskey. Put up a pine tree and decorate it. Wrap up the presents from Wal-Mart. Light fire in fireplace. (Important: Remember to open damper first this year.)  Celebrate early and try to get rid of the visiting relatives before they get drunk on fruitcake. 

December 31 - New Year's Eve
Drink and shoot fireworks. If you don't have any fireworks, just shoot the shotgun in the air at midnight.
