Post # 23 # Festivals of Futility

/ /
Sabbath - a weekly festival having its origin in the fact that God made the world in six days and was arrested on the seventh.
Ambrose Bierce

Festive moods are synonymous to bright yellow, orange and green, and a lot of other happy things. Now it has found an unlikely company. Plain bore. It is right, these days, festivals bring along with them a plain bored feeling. Time it is never the same it used to be.

New year. Holi. Diwali. Local festivals. There are so many of them. And the worst thing about these holidays is that we always have a dry day. There are also heavenly blessings like official working days that squeze salt into wounds. So now I prefer any uninspiring holiday, without being a dry day to those blasting and wasting holidays, which are dry days and we have to go office.

Even if I take some bottles in advance or my employer takes some pity and gives me an 'off', the festivals are like any other Sunday. Though I like it when it is preceded or followed by a weekend -- that gives me some kind of a long weekend, some laid-back things... otherwise, the plain old bored feeling is on the horizon.

Boryeong Blast: This kind of festival must be fun
