For me, Thanksgiving is about being thankful for sanitation. It is the most beneficial human achievement. It is taken for granted by everyone who has it, but is the single greatest contributing factor to human quality of life. So Thanksgiving is the day I reflect on being thankful for, primarily, clean water and sewers.

So, I thought what actual thing could other holidays be seconded to represent?

The February statutory holiday, which is, I think pre-appropriately, called “Family Day” but which we all know is for Valentines, shall henceforth be a day in honor of women’s reproductive health services. Not as important as potable water and a general absence of cholera, but a close second.

That is all.
