Peter's Crazy Calendars
By KATHLEEN W. REDMAN
  

1     Peter was in high school. He was doing on-the-job training at a printing company. He wanted to learn the business. He hoped to have his own company some day.
 
2     Today Peter sat in a small room working on a calendar. The calendar was for the schools in the county. It was a big order, and it was important for everything to be correct.
 
3     "I need someone to check this calendar. Are the January holidays correct?" Peter asked.
 
4     Two people looked at the calendar. They laughed. Peter was worried.
 
5     "What's wrong?" he asked.
 
6     "You put Independence Day on January 9," they said. They laughed some more. "We can't have our Independence Day fireworks in the winter," they told Peter. Peter moved Independence Day to July 4.
 
7     "What about New Year's Day? I have it on January 1," Peter said.
 
8     "That's right," a woman said.
