Happy Mormon Day!


Today the State of Utah celebrates Pioneer Day (aka Mormon Day aka, according to my friend Msgr. Pellegrino, The Day the Earth Was Created). It celebrates the day in 1847 that the first group of Mormon pioneers entered the Salt Lake Valley. It is celebrated with fireworks, cook outs, and one of the nation's largest parades. (I hate this parade. The summer I worked for the parks department, I had to spend 18 hrs the next day cleaning up after it.) I will celebrate it this year by eating the Jello-shots my junior deacon's wife made for me. (FYI Utah consumes more Jello per capita than any other state in the union.)
