When Mr. Man was a boy his parents would go to town (Idaho Falls) on this holiday to shop all the bargains. As parents of seven children finding bargains was important, just as it is today for any parent. Mr. Man didn't have the pleasure of accompanying them because in his town they still had to go to school on this day. What no school holiday? But then what sane parent would take seven children shopping for clothing? When I asked him about the clothes bought for him he replied, "They were great for working in the fields!" Who knew Mr. Man was so fashion conscience as a boy? I didn't!
