Call it PopularMusicOfVariousUnrelatedDifferentGenresFest or whatever else; don’t ride the coat-tails of a musical tradition that you clearly cared nothing about, and were okay with smothering and covering with music (or even hip-hop) not even remotely related to the original purpose of the event, just to make more money.

So we have Sunday shopping, alas, and have had for some years now.
However, usually on public statutory holidays like Canada Day (which is tomorrow), many businesses close.
But I’ve noticed that this year, oddly enough, many businesses that normally close on holidays (including government-run provincial liquor stores) like Canada Day are actually staying open this year and instead closing on Monday, thus matching what the banks and civil service do (take off Monday if a holiday lands on a Sunday).
But that means that they stay open on the day of the holiday itself – which they otherwise normally take off – and instead close the day after the holiday, which makes no sense.
Apparently commerce is more important to them not only than the Lord’s Day, but even special individual Sundays here and there which happen to also be public holidays, period.
Bow down before Mammon, greedy businesses and government-run liquor stores, etc.
For that is your true god. At least the mask is off this time; I suppose we should be thankful for that at least…
I watched a St. Patrick’s Day parade in a big Canadian city over the weekend; a friend watched one elsewhere.
In the one I saw, there was a Caribbean steel band playing, of all things, ‘Copacabana’.
Nothing Irish about it.
In the one my friend saw, there were Chinese lions, and there were Mexican dancers in full Mexican costume.
Nothing Irish about them.
I wonder, if at a Mexican Day of the Dead parade or a Caribbean festival parade or a Chinese New Year parade, we will ever see an Irish float participating?
Rhetorical question, of course. We all know that it’s okay for white ethnocultural groups to have their special day and parades colonized by others, but not the reverse, of course.
