Comedian Eugene Mirman now has his own holiday. The Eugene Mirman Comedy Festival is in Boston this weekend, and in honor of that, Boston Mayor Marty Walsh has officially proclaimed May 3rd, 2014, as "Eugene Mirman Day" in the city. Mirman grew up in suburban Boston and started his standup career in the city before moving to New York.
Check out Boston's official proclamation about the holiday and a photo of Mirman with the Mayor (via his Twitter) below:
Dear Teachers and Staff,
It's that time of year when students begin asking questions about Santa Claus. Some are believers, some are doubters, and when they come together…watch out! My suggestion is to treat the idea of Santa much like you would the idea of our democracy—a pleasing notion that some take comfort in (even if it's not real!).

Are these Muppets planning on stopping their adorableness anytime soon? Their unabating, rampant cuteness is just pounding away at all of our shriveled, embittered, bronze-encased hearts. And it hurts. Their latest crime is this gift guide from the Secret Santa between Muppet and human Muppets co-stars, including Sarah Silverman, Rashida Jones, Kristen Schaal, and Whoopi Goldberg. They all love each other so much! I really can't wait for November 23 so the movie comes out and I can go back to my regular cynical, bleak existence without all this stupid joy in the way.
So, today is Memorial Day, so we won't be publishing. Instead, Halle and I will be drinking out of doors, just as America/God intended. But we'll be back tomorrow in full force, albeit probably a little sad that the long weekend is over. But don't worry! We're true professionals, so you won't see any of that post-long-weekend malaise seeping into our posts. In any case, enjoy the holiday, and we'll see you tomorrow.
