holiday observance

As the temperature rose into the forties, with no rain or snow, it was a good day to take a walk.

Exelauno Day is not much celebrated any more, though I remember hearing of it when I was in school. Of course, as a student who took the first semester of first year Greek three times before going on to a second semester, I never did read Xenophon. Still, exelauno means "I march forth," and I do have a weakness for puns, so there it is.
