Eh, You're A Holiday....
Long-Term Strange-Trippers will know that my all-time-favourite holiday is Canada's "August Long Weekend". Of course, since I am only an honourary Canadian (and that only because of my strange spelling habits), I never get to celebrate it!

I don't know if the holiday has an official flower, but I would strongly suggest this Liatris punctata, whose blooming around this time every year is a bittersweet reminder that Summer is on a downward spiral.
