Holiday Reading Room "Mothers Day"

Ever wonder why Mother's Day is when it is...or even why it is?
Oddly, there's no entry in this comic for Father's Day!
(Perhaps because Father's Day wasn't made an official American holiday until 1972, decades after this comic was published in 1956!)
Why is this comic entitled "Every Day is a Holly Day" instead of "Every Day is a Holiday"?
Because it was given away to kids by grocers who sold Holly Sugar!
Illustrated by John Rosenberger, it's a unique pamphlet covering a number of American holidays, including both Lincoln and Washington's Birthdays (before they were combined into "Presidents' Day"), Flag Day, Independence Day, Labor Day, Thanksgiving, and a couple of holidays we've largely abandoned...Pan-American Day and American Indian Day!
We'll be presenting the other chapters on the dates they fall upon.
Watch for them!
