A gathering for May 1 “Eid il Fitr” ,which translates to “When Phil Posts to His Blog”
When people think of “the holidays” they usually think of the November-February stretch that includes many of the popular holidays in the English speaking world. If you look a little further, you’ll see that in both English speaking countries and other countries there are a lot of underrated great holidays that occur in the month of May. I’m going to spend the month posting about and making good natured fun of most of these holidays.

Three of these awesome holidays occur consecutively during the first week of May. I will list them in a poll below and please vote for the one that you want to learn the most about.
Whichever holiday is chosen will be the first post in May. If you have one that’s not on the list, please shout it at me in the comments!
With Valentine’s Day tantalizingly close, I thought some of you 80’s aficionados would appreciate hearing that song again. Of all the old shows they’ve made updated, current versions of, why not The Love Boat? Who doesn’t want to see B-list celebrities from cancelled TV shows hooking up every week amidst a flimsy plot premise and corny dialogue? The original crew could make cameos. It would be great!
In a comment give the reason for your vote AND who you would want to see on the new Love Boat if it were to come back now.
In last weeks poll of brains vs. beauty the voters overwhelmingly chose to have brains over beauty. This week the question is, if a genie popped out of a bottle and offered you a choice of two superpowers…
Please give your reasoning for your choice in the comments. Have a great Friday! ~Phil
In an effort to keep The Phil Factor interesting I’m always looking to make improvements. Over the last year I’ve added a few regular features, Music Monday, Top Ten Tuesday, and Wordless Wednesday. I think the Top Ten Tuesday has gotten such good reaction that I’ll keep that as a permanent feature, but the other two, I’m not so sure. I’d love your feedback. Please vote below and leave comments on what you like or what you’d like to see.
Thanks for your feedback everybody! Have a great Friday! ~Phil
