    We do have the Susan B. Anthony coin. That was a real winner.

    My celebration would include any food that is not prepared, cooked, or cleaned up by me. I'd settle for pizza or a can of soup. And of course a "let's pretend this is a guilt free dessert."

    You can have a Holiday just as soon as Men get one. Of course ours will be a weekday and yours will appropriately be a weekend day, say Sunday.

    Men already have their own holiday. It's called Superbowl Sunday. And Thanksgiving. And Christmas...

    Women have Valentines day and Thanksgiving and Christmas. But I digress.

    Off to the doctor's.

    So women must always be the followers, huh?

    I was thinking something along the lines of celebrating the day that men stopped unconstitutionally disallowing women the vote.

    As for food, I'd like something extravagant that involved whipped cream. :eusa_drool:

    Valentine's Day I'll grant you, maybe even Christmas. But Thanksgiving? Nope. Women spend 2 days in the kitchen while the men get to eat, drink and watch football. That one most definitely goes to the men.

    I'm fine with women not having a Federal holiday. It would be just another day for the banks and schools to be closed while I have to go to work. We have enough of those already!

    But now that I think about it, you could probably bribe me for my support with promises of chocolate...

    I think the celebratory food would be chocolate covered pretzels, and chocolate covered strawberries
