September 23: Saint Marty's Day in 13 Days

Yes, it's that time of year again.  Time to bring the Saint Marty's Day tree down from the attic or up from the basement.  Time to string the eaves of the house with Saint Marty's Day lights.  Time to start baking Saint Marty's Day cookies.

Just last night, I was thinking, "When are they going to show How the Grinch Stole Saint Marty's Day and A Charlie Brown Saint Marty's Day on TV?"

I know, I know.  It sneaks up on you.  But you still have 13 more shopping days until Saint Marty's Day.  That's plenty of time to get something from Amazon or Walmart.  I understand that the Post Office is staying open late so people can get their Saint Marty's Day cards in the mail on time.

Don't think of this post as a piece of shameless self-promotion.  Think of it as a friendly reminder that October 5 is fast approaching, and I don't want anyone to be caught by surprise.

In case you are wondering what you can buy Saint Marty for Saint Marty's Day, here is a partial gift list for your edification:
  1. Lizzie Borden in Love:  Poems in Women's Voices by Julianna Baggott
  2. The Pulitzer Prize in Poetry
  3. The Nobel Prize in Literature
  4. Marbles, Mania, Depression, Michelangelo, and Me:  A Graphic Memoir by Ellen Forney
  5. New Pens
I will be publishing more gift suggestions in the days to come, but I don't want to keep you any longer from decorating your Saint Marty's Day tree right now.

Sing with Saint Marty, "Oh, Saint Marty's tree, Oh, Saint Marty's tree.  How lovely are thy branches!"
