“The difference in ordinary and extraordinary is that little extra.” Jimmie Johnson, former Dallas Cowboys head coach
A holiday is an extraordinary day. The origin of the word ‘holiday’ can be traced back to over 1,000 years ago before the words ‘holy’ and ‘day’ were truncated to its current state. The word ‘holy’ brings a very specific meaning to an otherwise normal day. A ‘specially recognized or declared sacred’ day is something that can take an ordinary day and transform it into something no one ever would have imagined.
