Christmas toes

Christmas toes filter: I'm about to travel half-way across the world to spend the holidays with my brother's family and I want the two girls to think think they have the most awesome-es auntie known. So here's the question... Red and green toenails. Should I do one foot red and the other green or alternate colours? I'm open to other patterns and ideas as well. I want them to giggle.

Who celebrates pre-Easter holidays?

Where is there a Thursday Pre-Easter Holiday? I met an Asian tourist today who asked whether banks, libraries, and schools would be open on the Thursday, Friday, and Saturday before Easter. When I said the only "holiday" was Easter Sunday, he said that 15 yrs or so ago he visited the US and remembered these days as holidays. Now I'm curious. Does anyone know where in the world this might be so? I told him that some churches might hold special services on those days, but that wasn't what he remembered.

Was my letter really delivered on the 4th of July?

I sent a certified letter to a large business last week and just checked its status on the USPS web site to see if it had been delivered. The site tells me that my letter was indeed delivered. On July 4. Which is a Federal holiday. On which they don't deliver the mail. Okay, I guess the Federal observance of Independence Day was on the 5th this year, but that's only because the 4th was a Sunday, On which they also don't deliver the mail. So does this make sense? Do they really deliver mail on Sunday and the 4th of July?
