    In my fantasy world, April 20th would take the place of a religious holiday (Christmas). Our nation has many and no religions: why does Christianity get a pass? We can trade gifts on 4/20. Sure, the gifts will be drug related, but aren't they sometimes that already?

    Love to see what Hallmark greeting cards could do with your delectable idea.

    Green, gold, and purple will remain sacred colors.

    As indeed they should. And one shouldn't have to 'strain' too much to Crack why that is; at least in the estimate of my Colombian Granddaddy.

    I think the only problem with your noble idea is that . . .

    "What do you mean it was yesterday? Fuck!"
    . . . many of us would just forget the date anyway.

    To have a paid holiday, I'd first have to have a job :worms:

    In my house....every day is already 420 day but I'm up for replacing Christmas with Cannamas to see if someone will buy me a Cannamas gift.

    My only concern is that hanging those strings of light on my cannamas bush could knock the trichomes off. I guess I could use the Christmas wrapping paper I won't need to line the bottom of the bush first.

    It could be an easy swap out for Easter. Someone must have been high anyway to come up with a rabbit delivering eggs.

    It just wouldn't be a movable feast. and Jesus would be cool with it.

    I don't get drug related gifts. I totally want drug related gifts. The tree will be amazing, plus you can plant it after! Instead of pine trees and cinnamon, 420 will smell like weed and incense. I can wear roach clips in my hair. I'm loving the idea, and I'm starting this 420. I don't need to wait for the guvment to tell me 420 is a holiday. As for getting paid, I'm self employed and cheap. I'm lucky I'm getting gifts.

    It is said that if you have been a good boy or girl, Panama Red sneaks into you dwelling on 4/20 and leaves you gifts of chronic cannabis and other sundry stuff, eg munchy materials, awesome tinctures, specialty baked goods, etc.

    If you've been a bad boy or girl, he leaves you stems and seeds, ditch weed from Nebraska, ear wax, etc.

    Crap. At least I no longer have to wonder what I'm getting.

    Seeds and stems, long,
    May break my bong,
    But Nebraska ditch weed
    Never hurt me.
    – at least not much, anyway

    @John Coaltrain is our Greeting Card Poet Emeritus. Congratulations, John.

    Can we clarify if 710 is also a holiday, paid or otherwise?

    Much the same as Xmas is to Easter, 4/20 is to 7/10. You need flowers to press for oil. You need a Christ to kill. Same||same.

    Then I'm going to say we need a Harvest Festival as well. That's three of four season's. I'm good with that. Especially if Harvest Fest is more about food than gifts. I don't mind getting gifts, but shopping for other people is a pain. I never know what to get them that will make them as happy as me buying me something makes me happy. Gifts on 420 are great. Especially if I can register.

    Here in Tucson, we buy dog food from a place called "OK Feed".
    Pet food, bird food, and ranching stuff (horses/cattle etc.)
    I just got a coupon in the mail from them.....
    They announce a 4/20 sale... all day long.
    Spend $25 get $5.00 off.
    So.... 4/20 is already a Holiday with percs for one other Non-Cannabinoid place of business.

    and the night before 420, before going to bed, all good boys and girls would leave out a bag of funyuns for Panama Red.

    Do we get extra gifts? Is there a point to being a good girl if there aren't extra gifts involved ? I'm just thinking shopping must be mostly done. Also, if we weren't good heading into the holiday, can we redeem ourselves at the last minute with Funyuns? Is it the leaving out of Funyuns that makes us good, or is leaving Funyuns out simply the act of a good person. An extra act, which is not expected from bad little boys and girls? A Goodness Tax, as it were. It's kind of important to know, because I don't have any Funyuns, and need to run out here and buy some if there is redemption to be had. Or if my gifts will be held hostage if no Funyuns are presented. I could get some and leave them out just in case, but I'd rather buy weed, and if I have to get out and buy Funyuns, and then I don't get any gifts, I Will Be Pissed.

    It's just like Plenary Indulgences: you used to be able to buy your way out of sinful acts. It's one of Martin Luther's gripes from the List Of Gripes posted on a church door. You can buy grace to escape the scourges of Panama's gifting dilemma: cash or credit card accepted. The question of amount is at the discretion of one of Panama Red's associates, usually begging on busy corners everywhere.

    I don't think you could get off Santa's naughty list just by putting out milk and cookies, unless they were some good edibles.

    Sorry, you had to be good, or at least halfway decent, during the year. That would mean no combusting, no double posts or pissing off the mods, no bogarting the vap cap or dab pen, no dirty language, no vaping out of filthy glassware, and definitely no taking any of my comments and posting them in the "Out of context" thread. :goon:

    The Funyuns were just a little something, you know, for the effort. ;)

    and there would always be a stocking and some dank bud for Uncle Vito. :nod:
