My flatmate Dave and his girlfriend Kayci have decided that today, the 14th of December, should be a holiday. No particular reason for it, just that the month between Thanksgiving and Christmas was not filled with enough action.
However, they didn’t have a theme or name or anything for this momentous day. I tried to helpfully suggest themes, but they wouldn’t have any of it. I don’t think they trust me much in that regard ever since I suggested they go as an incomplete system and an inconsistent system, from Gödel’s incompleteness theorem.
So I have declared today Howliday. It is the day when we celebrate and fear banshees in all their glory. If you are very good, the Banshee Queen might leave a year’s reprieve under your pillow!
