The forgotten holiday...

Because we're California, and because (love him or hate him) Cesar Chavez had a huge impact on the state, the state has designated his birthday a holiday.

This only happened a few years ago.

I'm a midwestern emigree, I don't have major connections to California agriculture and I'm not latino, so the date isn't ingrained on my psyche. I always remember that Chavez's birthday is a holiday, but I always forget when it is until the day before.

Chavez's birthday is March 31.


I've got a day off work that I forgot about. I knew it was coming up at the end of the month, but when the end of the month came around, I forgot.
