Americans Would Be Cool with Another “Commercial Holiday” . . . If It Was One Where We Bought Stuff for Ourselves

 Between the Christmas season and now Valentine’s Day, I’m completely BROKE.

 

But I suppose there’s always room in the budget for more gifts . . . for me.

 

Here’s something that almost feels TOO on-the-nose as a sign of the times.  A new survey found Americans WOULD be okay with one more “commercial holiday” that’s centered around shopping.

 

But . . . we’d only be cool with it if it was a holiday where we were supposed to buy stuff for OURSELVES.  Like a National Treat Yo Self Day.

 

21% of people say January would be the best time for that holiday . . . 12% say December, since I guess that’s when we’re buying stuff anyway and there are the best sales . . . and 11% say August, where there aren’t any other holidays.
