But it's really a lousy holiday.
Just like Labor Day.
Both are holidays that mark the end of a good season.
Even football can't save them.
The good things of the past year get wiped away.
I saved a lot of money at my local Food Lion - now my number is back to zero.
We've got the long slog of winter weather in January and February to make it through until it starts to warm in March.
And we have the sunlight we need after work hours.
