So one reason to live in Massachusetts, if you were looking for one, would be that we get an extra holiday every year -- happy Patriots' Day. Although one can, indeed, mark the day by going to see a re-enactment of the start of the Revolutionary War, most people kind of forget that that's the reason for the holiday. Most around here think of it as "Marathon Day," because Boston has long taken advantage of the holiday to stage the big race. Traditionally, one comments on whether or not it's a good day for the race given the forecast; today's cool, cloudy conditions definitely make a good race day. Also a good day to hang out and relax and eat leftover chocolate cake.
