Casimir Pulaski Day

Pulaski

In Illinois, kids get school off for Casimir Pulaski’s birthday, but as a former kid, I can state with confidence that none of them has any idea what his deal is. Spoiler alert, kids of Illinois, but his deal is that he came from Poland to help fight the American Revolution and once saved the life of George Washington. Which is all well and good, except George Washington’s mom literally built George Washington out of food she ate, and we don’t get her birthday off. In fact, I don’t think we get George Washington’s birthday off anymore, either. 1.6/5
