    Seems kinda tasteless to make it today, IMO...
    70K 2013 SURVIVOR (Cabin 2120)
    70K 2014 SURVIVOR (Cabin 2565)

    In perpetual post-cruise depression/pre-cruise anxiety.

    Doing my best to be there for 2015.

    Every day is national metal day. Today is VETERAN'S DAY in the USA. Show respect for the ones who die for our freedom.

    Come on people relax. It's quite common for holidays to overlap (although National Metal Day is not really an official holiday). Why not celebrate both! The two do complement each other. Being a vet is pretty metal! \m/

    The issue I have with it is that this isn't official, nor does it have a reason for being on that day. Some guy somewhere just randomly decided to make it November 11th when he could have picked any other day of the year. You could day say June 6th at 6PM (6/6 6:00). Or February 13th, the anniversary of Black Sabbath's first album. Any day that Dio/Chuck/Dimebag/etc was born/died would be better choices as well.

    The reason it's on November 11th, is that it started on 11/11/11...as in "going to 11" (on your amplifier). Remember "Spinal Tap"? You'll find the reference and reason for the date in that movie.

    Ah, I guess that kinda makes sense. Oh well, I'll just stick to celebrating metal every other day of the year.
