Hug a Ginga Day - New Zealand

Hug a Ginga Day - New Zealand

Man, I wish I lived in New Zealand. Besides it being the land Frodo travelled through to destroy the ring (and what a beautiful land that is!), there is a petition, via local radio station " The Edge", for "Hug a Ginga Day" on May 25, that not only requests warm, bodily touches but also a day off from work. (I guess they're trying to avoid awkward, I-see-you-everyday-but-not-by-choice co-worker hugs.)

Bam! Should the U.S. get a National Redhead Day in honor and remembrance and intolerance of "Kick a Ginger Day"? Btw, I thoroughly prefer "ginja" to "ginga" for the ghetto version of "ginger", due to the implication of "ginja" meaning "ginger ninja". Half ginger, half Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtle, or something.

    The Ginger Phile has had the unfortunate disposition of being a ginger since birth. She has tried various medications to cure her gingervitis, including therapies such as tantrum-throwing. Her efforts have been to no avail. Instead, she is trying to write it out, via this blog. Unfortunately, she doesn't think it will bear a soul for her. The Ginger Phile is from the exotic land of Wisconsin, where she had daily inner turmoil over whether she was a ginger or a daywalker. So far, three of three votes say daywalker. She begs to differ, as someone recently told her they would want to be with her if they were biking at night because she is so pale.
