A Brief Reprieve

Objects in Calendar Are Closer Than They Appear

Normally, we can all relate to this “caution” meme. But despite it being April 15 (“tax day” in the United States), it isn’t this year — because it’s a Saturday. But it’s not Monday, either: Washington D.C. celebrates Emancipation Day (anything for a holiday for workers there!) That is normally April 16, but that’s a Sunday, so it’s instead being celebrated on Monday which pushes tax day to Tuesday. It may be a stretch, but it’s unlikely any taxpayers will be complaining.
