Our non-traditional card of the season. In the spirit of our previous wacky holiday cards
June 5th is Festival Of Popular Delusions Day.
The festival began in Germany on June 5th, 1945 which is one year after D-Day and one day before the one year anniversary. It marks the last day the Nazi’s were able to delude themselves that they would rule the Earth for a thousand years.
Festival Of Popular Delusions Day is now a day for ourselves to perform a reality check not only on our selves as individuals, but take a look at the popular ideas of the day.
To commemorate this day, and in the spirit of our “wacky” holiday card tradition, Cynthia and I sent out a card to our friends and also offer a copy here since we can’t afford stamps for everyone.
Shrove Tuesday (aka “Pancake Day”) is the day before Lent which begins on Ash Wednesday.
Forty days is a long time and it’s your last chance to get in some tasty and fattening foods before the fasting begins!
