A day to celebrate?

I had promised a friend of mine to write an article to share his pain which he felt on first of April, not all alone but with most of the World. I am not able to describe it in here. Words and literature start betraying me when ever I am trying to write something. However when I saw a latest comment on this site, I collected some courage and few words to put it down.

When I am met my friend, Mr “A”, on first April’s evening, he was down, looking far into horizon had some tears in his eyes. I called him, right from his front, but he was so deep in his thought that his ears refuse to listen and eyes to see. I had to shake him to bring him back on this planet. My friend was very sad. After persuading a lot, he opened his mind, heart and mouth.

He said “You know what’s date and day today.”
“1st of April”, I replied.
“Aaaah, 1st of April, all Fool’s day.” My friend became more gloomy, “April sweet is in, Feast of fools begins…..”
I stopped him and asked, “What happened dear, did someone make fool of you. Come on leave it.. today is the day for……….”
My dear friend screamed, “Who can make me foooooooooooooooool…”. I thought, “Yes, you are already!”
“But, I am sad because every donkey, money, dog and even these fools have a day to celebrate, but we assholes don’t have any day dedicated to us.”, he cried and said a quote in German – “Arschlöcher der Welt, vereinigt euch. Sie haben nichts zu verlieren, aber eure Ärsche!”

I was speechless. He was right in his sense, there was no day for people like him.

I tried to console him by saying, “Okkk… but you can celebrate it on 1st May, 4th July, 14-15 August” He said all these days are already occupied with something.
“Interesting” I thought to myself. However not many realise that these days are celebrated by Assholes. How so ever they are not meant to be. Then again, look at any day as such that is celebrated. Don’t you get the feeling that they too get celebrated by Assholes and the person(s) who are meant to celebrate? When that be the case, I wonder why Mr A would want a special day? Them Assholes celebrate 365 days a year.

Where is the true spirit of celebration gone? Can someone help me find it? Should it not be honouring/respecting the occasion, the cause the event? Why it all has become a play of Assholes? Tragic isn’t it? Think about it.
