Attacks in Paris means we have to TONE DOWN 2015 Beaujolais Nouveau Day.
That is a given.
Yes, we have to observe SOME MOURNING.
There are certain things in life that are fixed, inalienable and absolute.
You are either pregnant or you are not. Your birthday is your birthday, the day that you were born. It is not on an arbitrary day that is more convenient for a party. By all means you can have a ‘birthday’ party on whatever day you desire, just don’t claim that that is your birthday. Your birthday is your birthday.
U.S. Thanksgiving, since December 1941, is always on the 4th Thursday of November. Yes, of course, you can have a Thanksgiving ‘dinner’ on the 4th Friday BUT that will not make it Thanksgiving.
Beaujolais Nouveau Day is ALWAYS on the 3rd Thursday of November — exactly a week ahead of U.S. Thanksgiving. That is fixed and sacrosanct. By all means you can celebrate Beaujolais Nouveau the next day, on a Friday, or as I did last year, well into December or even early January. Just don’t try to make out that Beaujolais Nouveau Day is on any other day bar the 3rd Thursday of November.
So this year, Beaujolais Nouveau Day WILL BE on Thursday, November 19, 2015. THIS Thursday.
