We could try Juneteenth...I know it's celebrated on different days in different places, but we could pick A
day for a unified celebration...

The 3rd Monday in June would work. It would be wonderful to celebrate emancipation.

June 2 is the birthday of the Marquis de Sade. Perhaps you can dress up in S&M gear and go door to door asking for a spanking.

June 3rd is my birthday. We could celebrate that.

Then again, Jefferson Davis was also born on that day, so maybe not.

In the USA:
Stay with me... The 3rd Monday in June is close to the midway point between Memorial Day and Independence Day. In 2018, June 18th fell on the 3rd Monday. (This year it falls on the 15th.) On June 18, 1873, Susan B. Anthony was fined $100 for attempting to vote in the 1872 presidential election. And also on that date in 1928, Amelia Earhart became the first stewardess to fly in an aircraft across the Atlantic Ocean. (There were 2 men on board and it was 1928. Someone had to make the sandwiches.)

So it's called Women's Day, the 3rd Monday in June.

/The alignment of "18" is cosmic
//or "Drink Cuz It's Mid-June Day", I'm easy

Flat Earth Day-when we celebrate all the marvelous retreats that have been made by humans in the study of science.

You can't spell "Flag Day" without the "F" word!

I wouldn't put it in June at all. We've got this big holiday drought between January and May where we don't get a holiday off at all (where I work we don't get Good Friday off). I'd put a holiday somewhere in there.

OJ Simpson day - June 17

Seriously though,  Juneteenth would be appropriate.

June 14th is Trump's Birthday, I imagine there will be an Executive Order declaring that a National Holiday any day now.

My company is giving everyone a paid holiday in June. No meetings, no working, no emails. I've told my team to please close their laptops, that they won't get any emails from me, and to put an OOO reply on email. Do something with your family, loved ones, significant other even if it's just sitting in your yard. Just unplug.

Here in Spain we always get 24th as holiday (San Juan) and this year Whit Monday falls on the 1st so I'm getting two days off in June :) We get between 12 and 14 public holidays each year, but they don't move them if they fall on a weekend.
 
2020-05-30 11:23:36 AM  
we can do June 28th. it's my birthday, and my life's goal has always been to have that day declared as a national holiday anyway. not sure if it's because of the great works for humanity I'll do in life or just something I'll impose once I'm dictator-for-life, but if my fellow FARK-ers want to get a head start on it, I'd appreciate it

June 25th is June Lockhart's birthday. We could call it "Lost in Space Day".

With the way things are going now I wouldn't be surprised if The Purge is scheduled for June.

We can Breathe Day - police and public engage in healing, public awareness, fun community events that build trust, especially in lower income neighbourhoods.

Science Day - the one farkin day to celebrate/appreciate everything that makes our lives so convenient, healthy, etc. We celebrate awareness of upcoming technological feats and science stars. Each year, the president chooses 10 deserving scientists to visit the Whitehouse and get media attention for their accomplishments. If we can do a day about a mythical person, we can do this --- and learn a shiat ton, ideally.

Atheist Day - Its only fair they get a special day too. Why do many religions get a special celebration day, when logic means at best most (all but one) are based on utter bullshiat, and at worst they ALL are based on bullshiat?
Traditional adult dinner includes beer and pasta, lots of pasta. Ramen ok too.

ScottD61080: June 14th is Trump's Birthday, I imagine there will be an Executive Order declaring that a National Holiday any day now.


We could celebrate by burning sociopaths in effigy, storming gated communities, and razing "exclusive" clubs by planting community gardens on the golf courses.

Oh, and start the day with a tour of the homes of CEOs of corporations that pay no taxes.

They can pay for mercy.
