    I say we take one day of the year and create an official Mac User holiday. Almost like any other holiday, but with Mac decorations and presents.

    The idea just popped into my head and I imagined a huge global holiday with a parade starting and ending at the biggest apple store in each country. :p

    I think it's something we as a mac community should think about and promote to gain Mac awareness.

    Post your ideas and thoughts here.


    Note: I've been up for 24 hours so if I'm being a little crazy please alert me to go to sleep.

    I think sometime in February would be nice...it'd give you something to look forward to during the dead of winter.

    Naturally it should be April 1 (Apple's Birthday), but we might have a hard time getting people to take us seriously.

    ...Actually, I'm not sure I would take us seriously. :p ;)



    ...Or we could go with Steve Job's Birthday, February 24. ...Or Woz's Birthday, August 11.

    regardless of what day, it should be mandated that all Apple Store's cut at least 30% of all their merchandise. that'll get people to take em seriously.

    I like this idea.

    Let's go with February 24th. Because my Birthday's on the 25th, so I could have two holidays in a row!
