Made Up Holiday Specific Rules That Make More Sense Than Not Wearing White After Labor Day

In a short web exclusive piece, Last Week Tonight host John Oliver made up his own set of holiday-specific rules that actually make more sense than the arbitrary rule of not wearing white after Labor Day.

We are all familiar with the rule that you shouldn’t wear white after Labor Day which is much easier for some people to follow than for others. … but honestly we should be using more holidays as arbitrary points to stop doing things. For instance we should have a rule that after Thanksgiving you have to stop decorating your home with gourds. It’s cute in October, it’s acceptable, but obnoxiously folksy in November. But after that you’re just keeping loose produce lying around. It’s no better than adorning your front porch with a bunch of watermelons and carrot sticks.
