2010 Schedule for Oklahoma
A couple of weeks ago, when Christmas in Oklahoma came on a Friday, I started wondering about the year 2010 and what day of the week the holidays would fall on. Of course there are many special days throughout the year, but I'm talking about the holidays that many of us get off work because of them. As Oklahoma Realtors, Nancy and I know of one day that is not a holiday, but is very important to remember because it's the last day as of now, for the First Time Buyer Tax incentive. After Friday, April 30th, 2010, it will be too late to enter into a contract on a residential home to qualify for the money that has helped so many first time buyers get into their home. Of course this is was said about November 30th, 2009.
Although there I would expect another push by the National Association of Realtors for additional time, who knows what lies ahead.
Many feel that the Government has spent way too much money trying to make our economy stronger already. I will not speculate on what might happen. With the complications of the now in place incentive, it can already be confusing enough.
As Realtors, we are never guaranteed a day off, but the next paid day off for most of our friends is Memorial day. It will be Monday, May the 31st. The 4th of July will be on Sunday in 2010. Then Labor Day will be on Monday September the 6th. Columbus Day will be observed Monday, October the 11th, and Thanksgiving will be on it's normal Thursday, November the 25th. Christmas and New Years will be on Saturday this year.
That's pretty much the schedule for 2010. Of course there are many other special days, and events to remember. There is Presidents Day, Save the Eagles Day, Ben Franklin's Birthday, Martin Luther King Jr. Day,Amelia Earhart Day, National Freedom Day, 100 years of Boy Scouting Day, and Doris Day. May Day, and Pay Days. Days you wished you didn't get up and sick days. Days you though would never end, and the good old days.
And Men, don't forget Valentine's Day is Sunday, February the 14th.
Anyway, there is a quick rundown of 2010. I'm almost sure there is an Optimist Day, but didn't think I could find it on the Calendar.
We hope your dreams come true this year.
