It's a binary question. 0 for no, 1 for yes. The answer is 8.

Really, you can have any holiday you want, whether or not any one else participates/celebrates. I'm sure if you were to put in the effort to set one up, we'd all play along.

Holidays usually are more evolutions, rather than "Hey, let's make this a holiday." But don't tell Ol' Chumbucket and Cap'n Slappy that. :wink:

We could have TWO octopus holidays, one in August (the eighth month) and one in October (the month named after the number 8)! It would be great! Maybe? :tongue:

Hmmm, my birthday is October 9th, so I wouldn't mind having that be the second day of a Pastafarian Chanukkah.

The problem between August and October is the whole Gregorian calendar thing. Doesn't make a lick of sense. I wonder if it's time to resurrect the idea for a Pastafarian Calendar. Something that would actually have 28 days to a month, and 12 or 13 months (I can't remember the math exactly). There's about 5 days left over, but that's where the Pastafarian New Years 5-day celebration comes in. And on leap years, that celebration is just 6 days!

None of this "counting your knuckles and in between them to remember how many days are in a month."

From there, we could course make the 8th month include our Octo-fest.

Hurray!

Bring an Octopus to work day could be incorporated into the festivities.
