Another special-day for humans... and more confusion for me. I've learned that holidays are never what they seem so I just came right out and asked about this one.
ME: so, what is this special-day about?
MY HUMAN: MLK Day celebrates Martin Luther King, Jr.
ME: kinda like Christmas celebrates Santa Claus?
MY HUMAN: uhm, Christmas actually celebrates Jesus.
Jesus? Who the heck is Jesus?? I give up trying to figure this stuff out. But I did ask my buddy Google to tell me a little bit about Martin Luther King, Jr. I don't know a thing about Jesus, but MLK is waaay cooler than Santa Claus. I mean, Martin Luther King Jr gave his life to help all people be equal.
Yup. His life.
My human says I won't get any new toys or eat pie on this special-day. But that's OK because this day is about MLK, not me.
