    Really? I've never in my life heard of such a strange day :)
    I assume it didn't originate in NY nor is celebrated in NY either.
    What else did you hear about Visiting Day?
    Anyway, everyone is always welcome in my house. You can pay me a visit no matter whether it's a Visiting Day or not :)

    It applies to ET's. :biggrin: They put on a big show at Area 51 - Big IntraGalactic Fly-in. UFOs from all over. Rumor has it Zaphod's showing up with the Heart of Gold. I'll believe it when I see it. :wink: :rofl:

    I'm waiting for the Big InterGalactic Flyin and Weiner Roast over at M31.

    Today is a special day. legend has it that if you hang your stocking out on the patio and fill it with frozen broccoli, and you've been a good little boy/girl/penguin all year, Ivan will come and visit you while you are asleep and leave you presents.

    something like that. I forgot.

    Wow in my neighborhood we fill them with cheese curds. {smacks head} no wonder the little green men don't visit here.

    I promise it works -- with frozen broccoli. I am going to sleep right now to wait for Ivan Claus. Last year he left me a really cool crop circle in my backyard, and a nifty anti-gravity device.:approve:
