Happy Voice of Command Day

Abi Sutherland, in Making Light:

Today is Mother’s Day. Due to the complex interaction of the sun, the moon, and history, it also happens to be Pentecost. This conjunction can only happen when Easter is as early as possible in the calendar.

It is proposed, therefore, that the common theme of these two holidays be combined and generalized, so that those who do not celebrate one or both of them have some reason to make whoopie today.

Happy Voice of Command Day, in honor of all of those people in our lives who were irrefutably right. Parents, teachers, counsellors and eminences, priests and priestesses, even good books whose words vibrated our very breastbones and set us on the path of whatever righteousness was needed at the time.

You will celebrate it.

Read the whole thing. Don't forget the comments.
