Is it me or are you also sick of the chaos that occurs on those two days in america?

Everyplace I live it seems to get worse on those two holidays.

Maybe I am odd but after watching the WTC fall on 9/11 explosions on a holiday just rub me the wrong way.
Man you seem like one sour guy.

Very true, it's fun the first day then it gets old. But most are having a fun time and I sure have over the years.
