If Metal Bands Were Holidays…

santa guitarMetallica Day

Metallica Day is celebrated in three parts. In the morning, one is awoken with by someone who would normally be way out of his or her league, who will then provide both breakfast in bed and multiple orgasms. In the afternoon, a more traditional, but still much-desired, gift is given (e.g., electronics, jewelry, etc.). Metallica Day concludes with a gift that is both boring and poorly-made (e.g., socks with holes in them, a sweater several sizes too small, etc.). Every third Metallica Day is also St. Anger Day, in which the evening gift is surgery without anesthesia.

Black Sabbath
